NBA trade candidate: JaVale McGee, Cleveland Cavaliers
Trade confidence meter: 7/10
JaVale McGee is the other Cleveland Cavaliers big that is almost a certainty to be traded at the deadline. He may not be a sexy name or a big producer on the stats sheet but he’s a player that any team could slide in at the center position, whether that’s for spot starts or off the bench.
He’s an active big with great length and athleticism that could play a role for a team that has a need in the frontcourt. He may not be a starter at this point in his career but could add depth to a playoff roster.
McGee is almost guaranteed to be moved at the trade deadline and if he doesn’t get traded, he could be bought out to join a contender during the push for the playoffs.
Ideal destination: Toronto Raptors
