DENVER (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the trade says the Nuggets are sending Nene to the Wizards in a three-team deal, with Washington sending JaVale McGee and Ronny Turiaf to Denver and Nick Young to the Los Angeles Clippers.
The person told The Associated Press on Thursday that Washington also picked up forward Brian Cook. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because no formal announcement had been made about the trade, which was completed right at the trade deadline.

ESPN was among the first to report the trade and also said that Washington would receive a future second-round pick from Los Angeles.
