The Chicago Bulls have shown interest in signing veteran NBA Center JaVale McGee. This report comes from Yahoo Sport’s Chris Haynes. The 13-year NBA veteran appeared in 46 games last season for the Cleveland Cavilers and the Denver Nuggets. The center averaged 7.3 PPG, 5.2 RPG, and 1.2 BPG. McGee shot 51% from the field in 14.7 MPG.

McGee is currently playing in the Tokyo Olympics with Chicago Bulls All-Star Zach LaVine. The Chicago Bulls could use some rim protection, and the athletic McGee could fill that role nicely off the bench for a cheap price. The Bulls have had their name pop up in a ton of rumors thus far as they look to revamp their roster. Adding a rim-protecting center to play situational basketball with Nikola Vucevic could prove to be very beneficial.

In situations that call for it, the Bulls could run Vucevic at the four while McGee plays the five. This could allow Vucevic to focus on scoring while McGee does the dirty work in the paint and at the rim. Plus, it’s never a bad thing to have a proven rim-protector come off the bench to add valuable defensive play.
