    I also believe that he'll fare better when his environment dictates it. For all the shots taken at him when he was in DC, it was effectively an environment with a lack good veterans and professional culture due to too much youth. DC's addressing that now with vet signings.

    Is he worth it? In today's league environment, yes. With that being said, I think he'll get more than the current offer from the Nugs when the Dwight lotto ends. He's got some time to decide and I'm fairly sure he knows the value of starting big men to the league. I'd guess as far as a max offer, or close to it, will be given when DH moves. If Hibbert and Lopez are getting paid those crazy amounts, so can McGee. All it takes is one team.

    I'd be cool with Mcgee getting 12 mill contract from us to pry him away from the wizards. I know "but he's so dumb!!" whatever he has talent and i'm sure he'll grow out of all the things he does. Have McHale and the dream work with him for the couple of years and see where that get him. I'll be damned if it wouldn't get him in the allstar game once or twice.

    McGee would be a great pick-up IMO. And centers do get paid insane amounts in this league so 10 mil/yr for a center with potential might be worth the risk. If he signed here at least that means he would stay, unlike Dwight. McGee could actually flourish here with a big man coach like Herman Munster, Oops, I mean Kevin McHale, and would benefit with working with Hakeem. I definitely think he has a higher ceiling than Asik, but that's just by impressions. Asik could surprise us all and become a very solid player for us.

    People don't realize centers of Asik's skills are at a premium and you have to overpay for them.

    don't forget to put on HD

    I like asik, but no way will he ever be able to come close mcgee's physical talent.

    Lol. Yeah McGee is a better player if you're a **** team and looking to see some highlights every couple games.

    Give me the guy who plays good D every play than the lost idiot who's only skill is rejecting a guard's ill-advised floater in the lane.

    if howard is out the picture, and it came down to mcgee and bynum, i would go with mcgee because he is more athletic and less injury prone and also does not foul out stupidly when people get to his head

    I'm guessing the Rockets think he would be matched if they pursued. Seeing as he already has an offer on the table.

    McGee did good in the playoffs. I think his bad play was due to all those seasons with a bad team. The second he got on a winning team, he begin to break out.

    He may. And it looked like he was thinking about it in the playoffs. But you never know. I wouldn't give a contract based on literally 3 to 4 games.

    That is hilarious! If we did have both our cap situation would be terrible, but our defense would definitely be tops in the League.

    I think McGee's playoff venture has made him a better player. I think he is ready to step up his game.
