Nene Trade: Newly Acquired Big Man Will Debut Wednesday For Washington, According To Report

The 2012 NBA Trade Deadline saw the Washington Wizards complete a three-team trade with the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets that shipped Nick Young to LaLa Land and JaVale McGee to the Mile High City, with Denver center Nene being the return reward for Washington. The Brazilian big man is expected to make his first appearance in a Wizards uniform on Wednesday.

Via Michael Lee of the Washington Post:

Nene is expected to arrive in Washington on Saturday to meet with Wizards medical staff and take his physical to complete the three-team deal involving Denver and the Los Angeles Clippers. Nene is unlikely to join the Wizards in Memphis and plans to get in two practices with his new team before making his debut on Wednesday in New Jersey.

Young and McGee had worn out their welcome with Wizards fans, so folks in Washington are anxious to see what Nene can bring to the table. The honeymoon period will begin on Wednesday.
