Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-08-07
The Wizards aren't the only ones who have noticed that rookie big man JaVale McGee has some ability.

"I am so proud to participate in the USA Basketball mini-camp alongside some of the best up-and-coming players in the league," McGee said. "It's a great opportunity and a great incentive for me to continue to improve my game."

As a rookie with the Wizards, McGee actually wound up starting early on in the 2008-09 season on the way to averaging 6.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 75 games. He was clearly the team's most athletic big man -- a 6-11 leaper capable of blocking shots and clearing boards -- who looks as if he can make an impact provided that he develops an offensive repertoire.

He and Brendan Haywood will probably get the majority of work at center this season, so he's going to have to develop rapidly.

"It's an honor for a young player like JaVale to be selected by USA Basketball," team president Ernie Grunfeld said. "He has shown steady improvement, and participating in this camp will be great for his continued growth. There are all kinds of benefits for everyone here."
