New, comments

Per ESPN's Marc Stein, the Sixers and McGee's agent are discussing a buyout for Pierre's alter ego.

Depending on your valuation of entertainment value, you're either extremely happy or extremely despondent upon hearing the news from Marc Stein:

As Stein noted, McGee is owed $12 million for next year, which would presumably be reduced upon a buyout. The 76ers don't need to save much money this season due to the salary floor number they're up against. I wrote about that situation here. Any savings will likely be used to create more flexibility in the future or come right up against the floor for this season.

In the meantime, leave the JaVale McGee - Veteran Mentor memories alone.

We'll maybe miss you, Pierre.
