The Denver Nuggets did what many expected them to do on Sunday, they extended JaVale McGee the qualifying offer but passed on Rudy Fernandez – making Fernandez an unrestricted free agent.
The Nuggets top priority this off-season is locking up McGee, who still has a lot of room to grow. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri will meet with McGee’s representatives in Los Angeles on Monday.
There seems like there isn’t a lot of interest in McGee, which should be to the Nuggets advantage to re-sign him at a reasonable amount. However, that could change when big man like Roy Hibbert and Brook Lopez are off the market.
Denver will also try and keep Andre Miller.
