"Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri met Monday night with Nene and reps, one of three or four meetings the team had with its UFA to close deal," reported Ken Berger. The Nuggets are also making progress on bringing back restricted free agent Arron Afflalo, another player the Nets liked.
Only Denver could have given the free agent big man a fifth year. The Nets had reportedly offered him a four-year deal worth $64 million. Now, the consensus is that they're in Dwight-or-bust mode.
