Center JaVale McGee wants to remain with the 76ers for the rest of the season and beyond.

The team was expected to buy out his contract shortly after the trade. But the 7-foot, 250-pounder is still with the Sixers.

“I don’t want to get bought out,” said McGee, a 27-year-old in his seventh NBA season. “That’s not a positive thing. When you think about it, you don’t get all of your money when you get bought out.

“So it doesn’t make sense why someone would want to get bought out unless they are older – older and they want to go to a contender or something. I’m not that old. I just want to play basketball.”
