C JaVale McGee is now at the forefront of more Los Angeles Lakers rumors.
As free agency is approaching, the Lakers big man reportedly sold his home in Los Angeles.
Just over a week ago, we saw some similar rumors as Wizards SG Bradley Beal, purchased a new home in Los Angeles.
Over the years, we have seen a lot of speculation being put into the selling/buying of homes as it pertains to NBA free agency.
One thing we have learned is that it doesn’t always mean what we think it means.

Over the last couple years, he has been a veteran minimum who helps teams on the boards and on the defensive side of the floor.
We saw the impact he had on the Golden State Warriors when he played there from 2016-2018.
McGee had a successful run in Golden State as the big man won two NBA championships.
After winning his third title with the Lakers, we have yet to seen what he will do with his player option.
McGee currently has a player option worth $4.2 million.
Based off reports, not only will he be looking for a new home, but also, a new team.
JaVale McGee Is A Good Locker Room Guy
Although McGee is a guaranteed performer on Shaqtin’ A Fool, he is a great locker room guy.
He has a great personality and brings energy from the bench.
McGee is also known for his YouTube channel where he vlogs about his life.
In the bubble, we caught a glimpse of it as he brought us numerous memories after the Lakers won the NBA Championship.
Here is a minute clip from McGees YouTube channel.

McGee was able to also bring excellent footage of LeBron talking to the Larry O’Brian trophy after they won Game 6.

JaVale McGee did not see much playing in the playoffs as they turned to Dwight Howard for significant minutes at the C spot.
But, in the regular season he helped take some load off Anthony Davis as he averaged 16.6 minutes, scoring 6.6 points and grabbing 5.7 rebounds per game.
Another player that has been surrounded by free agent rumors is his running mate, Dwight Howard.
If both Dwight and JaVale find new homes, it will leave the Lakers searching for new big men.
