Assuming Adrian Wojnarowski is on his game today the way he normally is Denver fans can finally take a deep breath of fresh clean Javale-free Rocky Mountain air. The clown prince of basketball has reportedly been shipped along with a first-round pick to Philadelphia.
All the Nuggets get out of the deal presumably is the rights to draft a Turkish center. They do love their big Euros, don’t they? It matters not what comes back in the deal, though. Just the fact that they found a trade partner willing to absorb their $12M albatross is reason enough to be giddy. McGee is a joke and he made the Nuggets look even dumber than they actually are. He was easily the hardest piece to rid themselves of so it doesn’t really matter what they had to do. He’s gone.
