NBA Trade Deadline 2012: Wizards Trade JaVale McGee To Denver; Nick Young Traded To Los Angeles Clippers, According To Report

The Washington Wizards have traded JaVale McGee to the Denver Nuggets and Nick Young to the Los Angeles Clippers as part of a three-team deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

As part of the deal, the Wizards will receive Nene from the Denver Nuggets, as well as Brian Cook and a second-round pick in the 2015 NBA Draft from the Clippers. Ronny Turiaf will also head to the Nuggets as part of the three-team trade.

The deal is a massive redevelopment of the Wizards roster. Young was the Wizards second leading scorer this season, averaging 16.6 points per game, while McGee led the team in rebounds and blocks per game (8.8 and 2.5, respectively). However, both had become symbolic of the team's disappointing season, with McGee in particular becoming a figure of ridicule throughout the NBA for a series of humorous on-court mishaps.
