Stefan Bondy reports the Nets are "closing in on Nene after upping the offer last night. Went hard after the center after Chandler went to the Knicks." Meanwhile, Adrian Wojnarowski says the Nets will meet with Nene's agent, Dan Fegan on Friday afternoon where he will likely offer the Nuggets PF/C $60 to $65 million over four years, close to the max.
How this would affect the Nets interest in Dwight Howard or any of the other machinations the Nets are currently involved are unclear.
