In the beginning of last season the Nuggets felt good about their center and signed him to an extension worth 5-years/$67 million. But somewhere along the way they realized that they made a big mistake and traded Nene to the Wizards for JaVale McGee (another mistake waiting to happen). They felt that they had to get younger and Nene's deal would hurt them from making moves later on down the road. Plus, he's always injured, even though they got what they payed for. Nene has had the same numbers since the 2009 season. Instead he has been banished to D.C.
