The Panthers have exercised their fifth-year option on QB Cam Newton. He's under contract through 2015 now.
No doubt the Panthers were going to exercise the option on their franchise quarterback. The question becomes for fantasy owners though, can Newton be trusted this coming season as he is recovering, supposedly at a rapid pace, from ankle surgery and does he have enough talent around him to make him worth the risk. I am leaning towards no.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
