NBA Free Agency 2011: Nene's Suitors Begin Lining Up

As the free agency period nears, the Denver Nuggets face the loss of Nene.

The NBA's free agency period is scheduled to begin on Dec. 9, and with teams and players gearing up for the negotiations ahead, SBNation.com's Tom Ziller has compiled a list of every restricted and unrestricted free agent in the league.

Denver's list of restricted free agents includes Arron Afflalo, Gary Forbes and Wilson Chandler. J.R. Smith, Kenyon Martin, forward Melvin Ely and forward Nene Hilario are the Denver Nuggets' unrestricted free agents. It's Nene who figures to draw most of the attention from other teams, as reports indicate that he wants out of Denver and will test the free agent waters. The Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat are among the teams said to be interested in Nene's services.

Nene started 75 games for the Nuggets last season, averaging 14.5 points and 7.6 rebounds per game.
