NBA - Scoop Du Jour

NBA training camps are supposed to open up later this week and the Houston Rockets are hoping to have free-agent center Nene suiting up for them when that time comes.

Now without the services of retired 7-6 center Yao Ming(notes), Rockets coach Kevin McHale and GM Daryl Morey will meet with the 6-11 Brazilian in Denver on Monday, a source tells the Houston Chronicle. Nene, who has played for the Denver Nuggets since 2002, was a trade target of the Rockets last season, the paper notes.

The Chronicle reports that Morey is also in discussions with the rep for free-agent center Tyson Chandler(notes) as well.

The New Jersey Nets are "expected to meet" with Nene this week as well, according to the New York Post. League sources tell the paper that the Nets "have been among the most aggressive suitors for Nene."

Where do you think he'll end up?
