Wizards Vs. Hawks: No Nene In Atlanta For Wizards Tonight, According To Report

The centerpiece of the Wizards three-team trade Thursday was Brazilian center Nene, the seventh overall pick in the 2001 NBA Draft whom the Wizards acquired from the Nuggets in exchange for JaVale McGee.

Due to the fact that the trade was made very close to the NBA's official trade deadline of 3 p.m. Thursday, the swap between the Wizards, Nuggets, and Los Angeles Clippers wasn't made official until later Thursday night. As a result, Nene has until Saturday evening to join the Wizards, provided he passes a physical. So with all that in mind, it's not surprising that Nene will not be available for the Wizards tonight in Atlanta, per Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

Tonight's game tips off at 7:30 and can be seen on Comcast SportsNet.
