Some Questions About Nene

I don't have access to Synergy Sports, or really any other account-required stats-based observation of the effect a player has on his team when he's playing, but I'm really interested in the defensive effect Nene has on a team, specifically those with athletic guards who prefer to drive over shoot. The Rockets #1 problem is paint defense, and an upgrade in paint defense is clearly needed to lift this team up off the ground.

I ask because I feel like Nene would meaningfully change our defense in the lane and improve our team on both ends of the floor because of his rebounding ability, size (both weight-wise, giving him a clear advantage over Hill at C, and height-wise, giving him a clear advantage over Hayes at C) and mobility.

I also ask because it seems like his availability should increase given the impending Melo-and-Billups to NJ trade that is supposed to happen tomorrow. Would you guys be willing to take back a big contract to collect Nene in a trade (there are two left on the DEN roster: Andersen and Harrington. Personally, I'd be willing to take on either or both)?
