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.
The Nuggets signed Nene to a new five-year, 67 million contract in December. But the recent play of rookie forward Kenneth Faried made Nene expendable.
ESPN was among the first to report the trade and also said that Washington would receive a future second-round pick from Los Angeles.

The trade is as follows:
The Wizards traded our young, incredibly...
The Washington Wizards have been the laughing stock of the league for the last couple of seasons. Maturity and team ball were two of the biggest problem areas for the team over the course of their struggles. Thursday, the Wizards took a great leap forward by shipping JaVale McGee off to Denver in exchange for Nene. Sure, they had to give up one of their top scorers in Nick Young...
Here’s a video of Blake Griffin air balling two free throws in a row. No wonder the Clippers seem to be struggling.
You’d think after leaving the first one about a foot short he’d try to bank the second one in. Maybe if there was a Kia Optima under the rim…
WAIT, WHAT?? Apparently JaVale thinks he is the bee’s knees, but this really did happen: In addition to his on-court struggles, it appears that Wizards center JaVale McGee is a bit delusional. Sources say he has informed the Wizards that he will be looking for a contract averaging around $14 million when he becomes a [...]

The victory kept the Clippers within two games of the Lakers in the race for the Pacific Division lead. Griffin had 12 points and 10 rebounds, while Paul contributed...
I wonder if Blake Griffin knows what it feels like to get posterized, just like what he did to Kendrick Perkins a while ago this season.Well, Griffin got a taste of his own medicine as Suns' foward Markieff Morris dunked right on him last night in the team's 91-87 victory over the Clippers.Take a look at Morris go HAM in the video below:Written by Josh Dhani, Founder Josh...
