    Source: Wizards and Nuggets in serious talks on trade that would send Nene to DC for JaVale McGee and Nick Young...


    So, Nene signed to stay home in Denver, now see what loyalty gets you?

    I'm still surprised...couldn't have the nuggets acquired someone more established for Nene? Young's going to the clips, right? So it's Nene for Mcgee?

    So much for that loyalty, Nene. Sucks for him....I still don't understand how the Clippers just ganked Nick Young from the Wizards for nothing though. Why are both LA teams able to pull of deals like this?!?

    His efficiency dropped off dramatically, from 120+ points per 100 possession to 100. Shooting % down, TO% dramatically up. I didn't watch many Denver games but recall hearing George Karl saying that Nene wasn't very good shape and probably would not be for the entire season (need offseason regiment to get back).

    I wonder if he would be a good "buy low" trade candidate in the upcoming offseason. Will he fit in in Washington? If so, would they be eager to be rid of his contract?

    We need to relegate into two leagues, attractive cities and non-attractive cities, because there is nothing a team can do if it's not in LA, New York, Florida, or owned by Mark Cuban besides repeatedly tanking and catching lightning in a bottle like OKC or San Antonio.
