Nuggets get Nene back, Fernandez and Brewer

The Nuggets have resigned Nene to 5 year $13 million contract. In addition, they made a trade yesterday getting Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer from Dallas.

The Washington Post has the only analysis of the team so far

The Nene signing is great. I think all around, he is a very underrated player. He is a good defender, he blocks out, and he really does have some offense. Expect him to get more minutes and better stats with KMart gone.

Given the brutal NBA schedule this season, depth will be paramount. And the Nuggets are already super deep. Sure they are gonna need some players to step up their scoring. But if that happens, I expect the Nuggets to be a very good team this year.
