NBA Trade Rumors: Clippers, Wizards And Nuggets Making Three-Way Deal Involving Nene, JaVale McGee

The NBA's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline has passed, but there are some deals still in queue. According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post and others, the Washington Wizards, Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets are close to a three-team swap.

JaVale McGee is a restricted free agent at the end of the year and the Wizards have been reportedly willing to move him for the right deal for quite some time. The man that the Nuggets are dumping to acquire him, Nene, is currently making in the neighborhood of what McGee is going to cost them or someone else this offseason. For their part in all of this, the Clippers get a swingman who can score.
