The trade between the Washington Wizards, Denver Nuggets and L.A. Clippers became official on Sunday when Nene passed his physical. He is expected to practice with the team on Monday and Tuesday, and will join them in New Jersey when the Wizards play the Nets.
As expected, once the trade became official, the Nuggets waived Ronny Turiaf, who will be able to sign with any team once he clears waivers. Turiaf only appeared in four games as a member of the Wizards.
Turiaf has not been able to play since breaking his hand on Jan. 1 when the Wizards played the Boston Celtics. Waiving Turiaf gave the Nuggets the cap room to re-sign Wilson Chandler.
