JaVale McGee Inks New Deal With Denver Nuggets

Everybody who loves sports and the Internet loves JaVale McGee for his on-court antics.

Wednesday night, we learned that the Denver Nuggets love McGee for his on-court basketball abilities as the forward has tweeted out a photo of himself signing a contract with the team he joined mid-way through the 2011-2012 season.

Shortly after the franchise offically announced the signing, Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears reported that the deal is for four-years, $44 million.

The last we heard regarding negotiations between McGee and the Nuggets were that there was a five-year, $50 million offer on the table, but that McGee was looking for more.

Well, he got one; in the form of one less year, but a higher annual salary.

It should be noted where McGee's new deal puts him in the pecking order of athletic NBA centers as it's just a tad more generous than the four-year, $42.7 million the Los Angeles Clippers gave DeAndre Jordan before last season.

Similar players that are nearly the same age, perhaps that was the benchmark McGee was looking to surpass, as pointed out by NBA.com's David Aldridge.
