Keep in mind that this comes from the keyboard of Chris Broussard, who tends to throw a lot of stuff on the wall to see what sticks. Nevertheless, here's what he had to say about center JaVale McGee.

In addition to his on-court struggles, it appears that Wizards center JaVale McGee is a bit delusional. Sources say he has informed the Wizards that he will be looking for a contract averaging around $14 million when he becomes a free agent after next season.

First off, let's pause to admire the way that paragraph was butchered. Broussard may be an expert at working the phones, but clearly his sentence structure needs work. Also, objectivity and all that.

We done? Good.

If true -- and I could see why it is -- I have a very hard time matching that offer no matter how good McGee could become. Even if that's a means for McGee's representation to set the market, that feels like so much more than the Wizards would want to offer him. Nick Young's representation tried the same thing, and all that resulted was with Young coming back on the qualifying offer. That is not a situation I'd like to repeat.
