The Wizards are so much deeper in the low post that it should allow Nene to play reduced minutes which should make him able to play more games in 2014-15.
Paul Pierce is expected to be in town this week while the Wizards have to wait another week before their other newcomer, Kris Humphries, gets here to prepare for training camp.
The chemistry will be different for the Wizards without Trevor Ariza, who left as a free agent, but to improve on a 44-38 season it has to be even better for 2014-15.
