Nuggets Free Agency 2012: Decision On JaVale McGee Looms

After making the trade to bring JaVale McGee to Denver, the Nuggets knew they had limited time to decide how they would handle his impending free agency. McGee, who is a restricted free agent, is one of three key guys that the Nuggets have to make a decision on going forward.

McGee made a significant impact in the opening round of the playoffs, as he played exceptionally well in flashes against the talented Los Angeles front court of Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. However, consistency has always been an issue for McGee, so Denver must decide what kind of contract to offer.

Andre Miller is an unrestricted free agent. He formed an excellent backcourt trio with Ty Lawson and Arron Afflalo. However, Miller averaged a career-low of 9.7 ppg and will likely command interest on the free agent market. Rudy Fernandez is a restricted free agent and has expressed interest in returning to Denver.
