JaVale McGee re-signed with the Denver Nuggets Wednesday night.

The big man has a big contract. It’s reportedly for four years and $44 million.

The seven-footer averaged 11 points, eight rebounds and two blocked shoots per game in 61 games with the Nuggets and Washington Wizards last season.

He came to the Nuggets in March as part of the trade deal that shipped Nene out of town.

McGee helped Denver get to the postseason and he made his first playoff appearance of his career with the Nuggets.
