McGee, on top of being one of the league's most entertaining players, enjoyed a solid season in 2011-12 between the Washington Wizards and the Nuggets. He averaged a career high 11.3 points per game, and was second in the league with 2.16 blocks per game behind Serge Ibaka.
McGee's free agency hasn't been discussed much publicly. He is reportedly a priority for the Nuggets, though a lot will depend on what McGee's asking price and what the organization is willing to pay.
