JaVale McGee May Represent Philippines At 2013 Asia Championships

Tuesday May 15th, 2012

Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee may represent the Philippines in the 2013 Asia Championships, according to ProBasketballTalk.

There is currently a bill in the legislature that would make McGee a naturalized citizen of the Philippines. McGee visited the Philippines during the NBA lockout several times to appear in exhibition games. The 24-year-old is slotted to become an free-agent this offseason. In 61 games this season between the Washington Wizards and the Nuggets, McGee averaged 11.3 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. Last season in 79 games for Washington, he averaged 10.1 points and 8.0 rebounds per game.
