The Washington Wizards have been the laughing stock of the league for the last couple of seasons. Maturity and team ball were two of the biggest problem areas for the team over the course of their struggles. Thursday, the Wizards took a great leap forward by shipping JaVale McGee off to Denver in exchange for Nene. Sure, they had to give up one of their top scorers in Nick Young as well, but it was well worth the price to ride themselves of one of the dumbest players in the league in McGee.
The deal was a three-team swap that sent McGee and Ronny Turiaf to Denver, Young to Los Angeles Clippers and Nene, Brian Cook and a 2015 second round pick to Washington.
