    Yahoo! Sports reports that center Nene has been traded as part of a three-team deal. Nene goes to the Wizards, center JaVale McGee is headed to Denver and guard Nick Young is going to the Clippers. Brian Cook is also headed from the Clippers to Washington.

    Wizards flushing out some of the CRAP on this roster. Not done but it's a good start.

    Rockets have a solid lineup: Camby / Scola / Parsons / Martin / Lowry with five solid backups at each position: Dalembert / Patterson / Budinger / Courtney Lee / Dragic. They're a dangerous team versus someone who lacks depth.

    More active deadline than I expected. Didn't see Nene getting moved, thats huge. Wizards are headed in the right direction with him and Wall.

    Lakers getting Sessions is very nice, they needed someone who could create some offense and run the point.

    Wallace to the Nets is a good move too. A perimeter guy to run with Williams. If Lopez ever gets healthy again, they have a solid squad going.

    I really don't understand what Golden State was thinking.

    They must really feel that Bogut can come back and be really good again over the next two years. With chips like Ellis and Udoh, I am just surprised they couldn't find a safer deal than what they eventually pulled off.

    Its a gamble for sure, but I love it myself. I don't think they had much chance of winning with that roster and I don't see many teams out there that would be willing to give more for Elliss, or Udoh. A true 2 way C like Bogut is the hardest piece to find so I can understand going out and making the move for one. It may turn out to be a colossal bust of a move, but its a gamble with potential to pay off .
