Nuggets GM reiterates they want to keep JaVale McGee

One of the more interesting questions of the summer is: How much would you pay JaVale McGee?

He is a restricted free agent and Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri is already trying to scare off potential suitors suggesting they will match offers for him. Ujiri said Thursday he plans to re-sign McGee this summer.

What is McGee worth? DeAndre Jordan’s new deal for this season starts at $10 million. Joakim Noah’s new deal started at $10 million.

At his best, McGee can play with those guys. But his best comes only sporadically and his worst makes coaches pull their hair out.

How much will you pay for athleticism and potential? Going to be interesting to see.
