JaVale McGee, a Los Angeles Lakers flashlight, prepared to defend the team in his second year there. He believes the Lakers can play well in 2019-2020. Especially with all the changes that occur in the summer of 2019.
McGee has also signed a new contract with the Lakers. He agreed to continue cooperation with a two-year contract worth US $ 8.2 million. McGee did that because he saw the Lakers chance to win.
“I feel like they are playing (2K) games by cheating and gathering good players in a team,” said McGee per Omar Raja, House of Highlight . “We will play well. I feel we will go further. “
The Lakers did make a big change to his squad this summer. They even managed to attract several stars. One of them is Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans.
Even so, to get Davis, the Lakers had to give up their young players. They sent Lonzol Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and a number of voting rights to Pelicans. So the Los Angeles team had a shortage of players.
The Lakers then chased after several players. They even want Kawhi Leonard. However, it failed to get it because the player chose to move closer to the Los Angeles Clippers with Paul George. The Lakers immediately took quick steps to recruit other players. That’s when they got McGee.
McGee himself has played with the Lakers for a season. He appeared in 75 regular matches in 2018-2019. The 31-year-old flashlight scored an average of 12 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2 blocks. The overall shot percentage reached 62.4 percent with an effectiveness of 62.5 percent. While the true shooting percentage is at 63.4 percent.
By looking at the statistics, the Lakers hope McGee can perform with the same strength even better. Because, they want to chase the title next season. The Lakers want to restore their glory as the top team in the NBA. (put)
