Just before the NBA buyout deadline happened, the Philadelphia 76ers and JaVale McGee reportedly agreed to a buyout. McGee was traded to the 76ers for a first round pick at the NBA’s trading deadline and appeared in 6 games with the 76ers, averaging 3.2 points per game with 2.2 rebounds. McGee is expected to sign with a contender.

McGee will be bought out of the contract, however as the 76ers decided to give him the remaining money on his contract.
