Worst Dallas Mavericks to wear number 11 since J.J. Barea: JaVale McGee

An NBA journeyman, JaVale McGee has spent time with seven different franchises during his 13-year career. His time as a member of the Dallas Mavericks is likely not one he wants to remember as injuries derailed McGee’s stint.

His season started with bad luck as he missed his first 13 games as a Maverick due to a stress fracture in his tibia. McGee battled various other nagging injuries throughout the 2015-2016 season.

Unfortunately, even when healthy, he struggled to find a real spot in the rotation during his one-year stint with the Mavs. He played in only 34 games during the regular season and started just two. He averaged 5.1 points and 3.9 rebounds in 10.9 minutes per game, which are all below his career averages.

The Mavericks waived McGee in July of 2016. He would go on to sign with the Golden State Warriors where he would experience a bit of a career resurgence, culminating with two NBA championships. McGee joined the Lakers last season and won his third title in four years. He has since moved on and is currently a reserve center on the Cleveland Cavaliers.
