The former Wolf Pack seven footer is coming off another championship run with Golden State.

Former University of Nevada center JaVale McGee is going to be joining King James in Los Angeles.

The two-time NBA champion with the Golden State Warriors is going to be part of the revamping by the Los Angeles Lakers, agreeing to a one-year deal worth just under $2.4 million, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.
