NBA Rumors 2011: Nene Reportedly Down To Two Teams, According To Report

With the Houston Rockets awaiting word on whether or not the Memphis Grizzlies will match the offer sheet signed by Marc Gasol, Nuggets C Nene is choosing between the Denver Nuggets and New Jersey Nets, according to CBSSports's Ken Berger.

Though the Nets have the advantage of location (at least when they relocate to Brooklyn) and the lure of playing with an All-Star point guard in Deron Williams, under the parameters of the new CBA, the Nuggets will be able to offer Nene significantly more money than the Nets, or any other team in the NBA. If Nene does bolt, much of the core of last year's exciting post-Carmelo Nuggets will be strewn across the world, leaving the team with big roster holes, but plenty of cap room.
