Nene Meets With Pacers, According To Report

A contingent from the Indiana Pacers visited unrestricted free agent center Nene on Tuesday, reports Sam Amick of SI.com. Nene, who has spent his entire nine-year career with the Denver Nuggets, met with the Houston Rockets on Monday, and is said to be coveted by the New Jersey Nets and Golden State Warriors, as well.

The Pacers have enough cap space to land multiple high-priced stars, and have been mentioned in the wide-ranging Rajon Rondo trade rumors emanating from Boston. Nene will be looking for a lucrative deal, but has also indicated he will value winning highly. The Pacers did make the NBA playoffs last season, but only as a No. 8 seed. (That's better than the Warriors and Nets, of course; the Rockets had a better record than the Pacers but missed the playoffs, and now we're really splitting irrelevant hairs.)

Nene averaged 14.5 points and 7.6 rebounds last season. He is one of the most efficient scorers in NBA history, largely because a ridiculously high share of his shots are dunks.
