Report: Nene to Re-sign with Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets will re-sign center Nene, according to the Denver Post. Nene, a free agent, will reportedly sign a 5-year deal worth $67 million.

Nene began his career with the team in 2002, but he had considered leaving after his contract expired at the end of the 2011 season.

The Brazilian center averaged 14.5 points a game last season, which was just slightly below his career best.
