    Wizards bring in Nene, ship out JaVale McGee and Nick Young

    Nene has been called a top-10 center in the NBA by several league analysts.

    It hasn't been an easy couple of days for Nick Young. The Wizards' starting shooting guard was benched when the Orlando Magic came to town on Wednesday and adding injury to insult, bruised his right knee in the fourth quarter.

    Wizards throw one away against Kings, lose 115-107

    Nick Young took 23 shots. He made just six. But his most memorable miss came when, instead of going for an easy layup, he went up for a reverse 360 and missed everything. It was a signature moment against the Sacramento Kings in a game that the Washington Wizards should have won, but threw away on sloppy and selfish play. The result was a 115-107 loss.
