The three-team trade that saw JaVale McGee land in Denver and Nick Young head to the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for Nene and Brian Cook is finally official. Via Michael Lee of the Washington Post:
Nene passed his physical. DEN waived Ronny Turiaf. Brian Cook is available vs. MEM. So yes, the 3-team trade is complete #wizards— Michael Lee (@MrMichaelLee) March 18, 2012
The Wizards play Sunday night in Memphis, but Nene will not be available for that game. As Lee notes, Cook is available for Sunday's game, though probably will not play as it has been reported Washington is likely to buy out Cook's contract. The Wizards also added a new player to the roster for Sunday's game when they signed Edwin Ubiles from the NBA Developmental League to a 10-day contract.
