NBA Rumors: Nene To Decide Between Nuggets, Nets, According To Report

Nene has spent the last week paring down his list of suitors in free agency. According to Ken Berger at CBSSports.com, the Brazilian center will decide between playing for the New Jersey Nets and his former Denver Nuggets for the upcoming season. 

The Nets were reportedly closing in on a deal with Nene before the weekend began, offering him a contract supposedly worth at least as much as the 4-year, $58 million contract that Tyson Chandler signed with the New York Knicks. The Houston Rockets pursued the center as well, and could potentially jump back in the sweepstakes should they miss out on getting Marc Gasol.

As Nene's incumbent team, the Nuggets can offer a fifth year and more money than any other franchise in the league. He has said that success will play a large role in his decision, however, and a Nets squad featuring Deron Williams may be more attractive.
