Clippers Receive: SG Nick Young
The fallout for L.A. in this trade is tough to gauge. While Young does satisfy a need for them, his off-the-court attitude and work ethic are questionable. He's a big risk and big reward prospect.
I think he'll be affected by the guys around him and pay off big.
Nuggets Receive: C JaVale McGee, C Ronny Turiaf
This trade helped Denver by giving them a young center in McGee who can better fit in with their younger team than Nene. It also helps salary-wise, as they save on dealing Nene's salary.
However, I think it will bite them in the long term, as McGee will command a big contract eventually, either from them or someone else.
Wizards Receive: C Nene, PF Brian Cook, Draft Pick
The Wizards get a draft pick to help rebuild themselves into a contender. Plus, Nene is one of the most offensively talented big men in the league and gives the Wizards a true veteran presence that they need maturity-wise. Brian Cook is not of much consequence.
This trade helps the Wizards off the court, but not much on the court.
