Nick Young is going home (Clippers) while JaVale McGee is finally leaving Washington (to go to Denver), and Nene moves on just months after signing a massive deal in Denver (to Washington). Yahoo! Sports is reporting the three-team deal has gone down, which also includes Brian Cook and a second-round pick from the Clippers going to the Wizards while Ronny Turiaf goes to Denver.
Young is so ready to make it back home – he’s from Los Angeles – that he’s even willing to sacrifice his Bird Rights to do it. As for Nene coming to Washington, something is up. It isn’t just the emergence of Kenneth Faried that did Nene in. There are rumors of some health issues with him, and when you combine that with an enormous contract, you can see why the Nuggets took a chance that McGee matures on their watch.
