The Denver Nuggets have agreed to send JaVale McGee, along with a first-round pick, to the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday, a league source told Yahoo Sports.

The Sixers will receive a 2015 protected first-round pick that Denver owned via Oklahoma City.

In Denver’s two deals today, it has created $18 million in player-trade exceptions.

Denver is unloading the balance of $11,250,000 for this season and $12 million for 2015-16 on McGee’s contract.

McGee, in his seventh NBA season, was averaging 5.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in 11 minutes per game for Denver.
