HoopsHype Javale McGee rumors

Q: You'll likely start Ty Lawson at point guard, Iguodala at shooting guard, Gallinari at small forward and Kenneth Faried at power forward. What about center? George Karl: Training camp is going to tell me who plays. My idea right now is Mozgov would start with Faried and JaVale would stay with (reserve point guard) Andre Miller. But again, I don't (care) about starting lineups, and you guys are already stirring the pot. It's all about how many minutes you play, who you play with, how well you play and how we play (when you're on the court). Kosta Koufos is in the mix, too. Let's make sure you understand that. In the last 15-20 games of the season, when Timo got hurt, Kosta not only played well but good enough to get us to the playoffs. Denver Post

JaVale McGee invited 10 Twitter followers to a free lunch with him at Chipotle yesterday. And in typically JaVale fashion, the invitation was well-intentioned, but poorly thought out, producing a hilarious result. Given just five minutes notice, only one fan made it to Chipotle: Andy Mathisen, who doesn't even list the Nuggets among his fan allegiances in his Twitter bio. Mathisen took to Twitter to thank McGee, "one of his favorite Nuggets," for the free lunch. Maybe had McGee had just given him the other nine burritos, Mathisen would have called McGee his favorite Nugget. Deadspin.com

He also appeared in 41 games (40 starts) with the Washington Wizards before being acquired as part of a three-team trade on March 15. NBA.com

What about JaVale McGee and what are your thoughts about your draft picks and specially Evan Fournier? George Karl: “I’m sure that McGee will sign. That’s what our management is working on daily basis and I trust them. We don’t want to do a mistake about the free agents and try to do the best. The evidence is Fournier can be a NBA player. I think he played pretty good here, in Vegas. He showed us his style, his excitement to play here and hopefully he can follow our program”. EuroHoops.net
