Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE
Head Coach: George Karl
Main Reason for Change: Lack of playing time
As of November 27th, McGee was shooting 54.3 percent from the field, swatting 1.8 shots per game and had a player efficiency rating of 23.15, fourth among all NBA centers.
So why is he playing less than 20 minutes a game, all off the bench?
Ask Karl, who doesn't seem to care that the Nuggets just gave McGee a $44 million contract this offseason.
Karl has called into question McGee's conditioning, even referring to some of his made shots as "lucky."
Kosta Koufus, who the Nuggets signed to a whopping three-year, $9 million contract, has started every game for Denver despite averaging just 6.1 points and 5.9 rebounds with a PER of 14.46.
McGee is by far the more talented player, but he isn't getting the opportunity to prove it right now under Karl.
