Report: Contract Extension 'Unlikely' For Wizards' JaVale McGee

The deadline is midnight tonight for the Washington Wizards to offer a contract extension to center JaVale McGee, and an 11th-hour deal is "unlikely," a source tells Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

McGee, who turned 24 last week, is averaging career highs of 11.2 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.9 blocks in his fourth season. He's slated to receive a qualifying offer worth at least $3.5 million if he hits restricted free agency this summer.

All 30 NBA teams have until midnight to work out extensions with their 2008 draft picks. Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love and Danilo Gallinari, four of the biggest stars from that class, hammered out extensions recently; McGee, Brook Lopez and Roy Hibbert are among the notable names expected to reach free agency after this season.

The Wizards are in disarray this season, starting with a league-worst record of 2-15. They fired coach Flip Saunders yesterday.
