Lakers trade JaVale McGee to the Cavs

The Los Angeles Lakers have traded big man JaVale McGee to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

As Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports, McGee will join Cleveland and the Lakers will receive a future second-round pick.

The Lakers sent McGee to the Cavs in order to have the essential cap flexibility to sign Marc Gasol.

The 32-year-old was a fine piece off the bench for the 2019-20 NBA Champions, averaging 6.6 points and 5.7 rebounds in 69 games.

Lakers was in talks also with the Knicks for McGee.
