The Los Angeles Clippers landed Washington Wizards shooting guard Nick Young as part of a three-team deal, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

As part of the trade, the Wizards sent JaVale McGee and Ronny Turiaf to the Denver Nuggets for center Nene. The Clippers also sent forward Brian Cook and a future second-round pick to the Wizards.

The Clippers need shooting and hope Young can help them push deep into the playoffs.

Young elected to waive his "Larry Bird" rights to be part of the deal to send him to the contending Clippers.

Nene is in the first year of a five-year, $67 million contract.
