Adopt-a-Bronco:

Default OT - Nuggets trade Nene

3 Team Deal

Denver gets JaVale McGee & Rony Turiaf
Washington gets Nene
Clippers gets Nick Young

The move clears over a bunch of cap space for Denver, possibly to sign Wilson Chandler. Also, McGee is a RFA next year so the payroll is open for the remaining 3 years of the deal Nene signed out of the lockout.

Don't really like what we got in return, but Nene looked slow out there and not very aggressive. Timofey plays with some passion and is improving while Nene's skills are heading downhill.

**** yes!

i can't believe they re-signed him to that ridiculous contract in the first place. he is the softest big man in the league.

now they get to keep Faried on the floor, and that is great because he is already more of an energy guy than Nene ever was, and matches his production as a rookie. kid is raw, but once he gets more experience he could be a beast in the NBA.

I would have took a hotdog and beer for Nene. 70mil sitting on bench, and when he is in never fighting for a rebound. softest big man ever.

Hmmm. I love Nene but he was by far the most frustrating nugget on the roster. If he would only have shown up more and played "Big" all of the time he would have been a great player. Instead we got flashes here and there of what could be and have been strung along for years. Kennith Faried has been playing GREAT in the last few weeks so I dont see losing Nene as a really bad move. Hell we could have lost him to FA this past summer so at least we are getting something for him. I dont know much about the two guys we got but time will tell.

Man Wikipedia is fast. I didn't realize McGee is averaging 10 points and 8 boards per. Plus he's young.

They may waive Turiaf, just wanted the expiring contract. Trying to resign Chandler and they'll have to extend Lawson. They control McGee's rights next year so they can see if they want to keep him around or not - my guess is they just might.

Chandler's imposed deadline for this year is Friday. He's in Denver all week trying to get a deal done. If they do (and waive Turiaf as I'd expect), you'd be looking at:

C: McGee, Mozgov, Andersen
PF: Faried, Harrington, Koufos
SF: Gallinari, Chandler, Brewer
SG: Afflalo, Fernandez, Hamilton
PG: Lawson, Miller, Stone

I'm actually shocked by this. McGee is a talented big man, but a knucklehead. I kind of thought George had had it with guys like that. I'm one of the few, but I'll miss Nene.

This is more a sign of Kenneth Faried's progress than Nene sucking.

With the exception of Miller, I like that roster. People bag (correctly) on Nene for being slow but Andre is 2x slower for his position.

McGee is crazy athletic... he can do some things that are absolutely crazy.

But he is a total head case:

Hopefully a scenery change will help him!

I def wont miss the "big guy" getting out rebounded every game. Nene is half way down court sometimes when the rebound is barely off rim.

McGee is super talented. Just immature. He'll be good for the nuggets.

McGee is huge, and very talented. Also a knucklehead. I thought George was done with guys like that. Doesn't seem to be a malicious knucklehead, just a thoughtless one.

Too bad Nene has always been too timid for his Darrell Dawkins body. Maybe the Knicks could make a move for him. Nuggets East.

So we signed the guy in the offseason to a deal only to move him two months later when we're in the middle of winning games. and in return we got a head case moron who runs the wrong direction and who possesses no offensive game, and a scrub.

I mean I get that we did this because we're cheap and because Faried has been been exactly what he was supposed to be, but this is dumb. Our best post player is now no one, because we no longer employ anyone with a post game. Maybe andre miller amirite.
