I don't see many real suitors for him. Plus it seems like he really likes Denver, he doesn't seem like a ring chaser. People don't understand that every player's life dream is not to be Wade & Lebron's caddy.

If I were the Nets, I would go hard for Nene. Nene, Brook and Dwill is a nice trio.

Nene is MUCH better at PF too imo. Better suited there. Wouldn't be ideal next to Brook tho. Neither are stand out in the rebounding department. Him running the floor with D-Will would be pretty awesome to watch tho.

If Nene doesn't come back, I imagine that changes everything for Denver's FO. Atleast I hope it does.

He should go to the Euroleague. He would be Shaq of the Euroleague.

5 rings, 5x euro-MVP's, rebounding titles, scoring titles, 32/15/5 avg and always on the euroleague top 10 (wheter it's a layup or a dunk)

GOAT

Imagine if James Jones and Nene signed together on the same team. That would be Shaq + Kobe Euroleague style.

According to the espn article, Nene wanted $13per from Den. $13

Dude's career averages are 14+ and 7+. His best year was this year and he was 14+and 7+.

His demand makes me almost root for a lock-out. For $13per I want to throw you the ball and watch magic happen. For $13per, you are my franchise, my all-star, my super-star, the guy we are building around.

Not 14/7.

The Nets already have a big that doesn't rebound. They don't need another one

Yep. This is a perfect example of why the NBA might lose a season. These owners have done a pathetic job paying these players what they are actually worth.

Here's a hint owners:

Just because a few teams overpay these guys does not mean everyone has to.


Nene is a nice player. That is all. He's a career 12 and 7 guy. He's missed basically two full seasons due to injury. His best year was 15/8.

He's worth about 6 million a year. But he'll get a lot more than that because stupid teams like the Mavericks are willing to pay Haywood over 8 million a year for 5 years.

What a joke.

Kings have the most cap space and could use another big man.

Nene at PF and Cousins at C?

He's been injury prone but getting testicular cancer is kinda unpredictable and out of his hands. I do agree with everything else tho.

Nene has the size, athletic ability, skill to be an All-Star center. He lacks the mentality and the aggressiveness to actually produce the numbers on a consistent basis. 13mill for his production is kinda insane. Considering he'll throw up 19|10 one night and than 12\6 than next.

If Denver loses him they'll take a massive hit. Great player. Not 13m great imo tho.
