JaVale McGee re-signs with Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets just officially announced the re-signing of restricted free agent JaVale McGee. He signed the deal in Las Vegas with members of the Denver front office and his mother present.

Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reported that the deal is 4 years for $44 million, a larger annual amount but a smaller guarantee than the previously rumored 5 years, $50 million.

With JaVale’s contract signed Denver’s roster now stands at a full 15 players, not including second round pick Quincy Miller. Julyan Stone has an unguaranteed year left on his contract and could be waived to create a roster spot. Stone had surgery to repair a hip labral tear in early July and is out five months.
