After rehabilitating all summer, Nene is back and training with the Wizards a little less than a month before training camp begins.

He is joined this week by the Wizards' key free agent acquisition, Eric Maynor. Al Harrington, who signed in August as a free agent, has yet to report because he is dealing with a family matter. 

John Wall, Bradley Beal, Glen Rice and Martell Webster already have been training at Verizon Center.

The Wizards begin training camp Sept. 28 on the campus of George Mason in nearby Fairfax, Va.

Nene was limited to 27.2 minutes per game in 61 appearances, his lowest output in a full season since 2006-07 with the Denver Nuggets. 

His 12.6 points and 6.7 rebounds also represented a dip in production. Coach Randy Wittman, however, said he expects Nene, who missed the start of last season with a foot injury and ended on the bench with sore knees, to be at full speed.
