JaVale McGee traded to Cleveland Cavaliers

The Lakers traded C Javale McGee to the Cleveland Cavaliers for a future second-round pick.

Fantasy Impact

The Lakers then quickly signed Marc Gasol to a two-year deal. If McGee remains with the Cavs then he'll be part of a group that backs up Andre Drummond.

JaVale McGee exercises player option

C Javale McGee will pick up his $4.2 million player option for the 2020-21 season.

Fantasy Impact

McGee fell out favor with the Lakers during the NBA playoffs, but did start 68 games during the regular season. He will start alongside Anthony Davis as along the Lakers don't bring in another big. McGee averaged 6.6 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.4 blocks across 16.6 minutes last year.

JaVale McGee back in the starting lineup for Game 1 vs. Nuggets

Lakers C JaVale McGee will re-enter the starting lineup for Game 1 against the Nuggets Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

The thought process here is that the Lakers need McGee’s size to compete with Nikola Jokic on the defensive end. He should see more minutes this series than he did in the series against the small-ball Houston Rockets.

Fantasy Impact

Javale McGee grabs seven rebounds in limited minutes

JaVale McGee contributed six points (3-4 FG, 0-0 FT) along with seven rebounds, and two steals in 11 minutes of action Thursday night in the Lakers 103-101 win over the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact

McGee collected four offensive rebounds and was very active while on the floor in the Lakers' victory. McGee sat out of most of the contest due to the Clippers deploying smaller lineups, but McGee still did well in a reduced capacity. His minutes will continue to hover in the 10-15 minutes range, which isn't enough to justify a roster spot in DFS lineups. On the year, McGee is averaging 6.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 1.5 blocks, and 0.5 steals in just under 17 minutes per game for the Lakers.
