Former Denver Nuggets center, Nene, has been traded to the Washington Wizards in a three team deal with the Nuggets, Wizards and Clippers. The Nuggets, who signed Nene to a 5 year, $67 million contract last December, have sent him away for centers JaVale McGee and Rony Turiaf. The Clippers agreed to send Brian Cook and a second round pick to the Wizards in exchange for shooting guard Nick Young.
