JaVale McGee Might Be A Naturalized Citizen Of The Philippines Soon

New, 1 comment

So, Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee had a pretty good postseason performance -- though it ended after seven games. What else is in store for the restricted free agent? Citizenship in the Philippines!

↵

There is currently a bill in the Filipino House of Representatives that would grant McGee naturalized citizenship if the law-making body passes it. If that happens, McGee would then be eligible to play for the SMART-Gilas Pilipinas national team.

McGee did play in the Philippines twice during the NBA lockout, giving him some connection to the country.
