The 76ers have agreed to waive JaVale McGee in time for him to sign with a playoff contender, according to USA Today's Sam Amick.

He played in six games for Philly, averaging 3.0 points and 2.2 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per contest.  The 27-year-old was acquired last month in a deadline-day deal from the Nuggets along with the Thunder’s 2015 first-round pick and the rights to Nigerian forward Chu Chu Maduabum in exchange for the rights to Cenk Akyol.

Philadelphia will reportedly pay McGee the full amount he's owed, including a $12 million payout next season.
