Denver Nuggets send JaMychal Green to the Oklahoma City Thunder

Denver Nuggets send JaMychal Green to the Oklahoma City Thunder

Denver Nuggets have designed the first deal of the holiday season. MVP Nikola Jokic sends JaMychal Green to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a draft pick.

Like Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN Reportedly, Nuggets earned the 30th pick from Thunder in an upcoming draft. Furthermore, OKC will air other second-round picks in the future for Big Man JaMychal Green. In addition to Green, Thunder also got his first Nuggets round in 2027, but that’s protected.

This makes Denver a prime candidate for draft day trading because they now have picks of 21 and 30. Meanwhile, Oklahoma City has long been considered a potential trading partner, having already designated twelve places on the list for next year and also allowing them to count on positions 2 and 12.

In addition, OKC had more than $30 million of cap space before the trade, which allowed them to easily absorb Green. The big man has a player option for 8.2 million players for next season, which according to Lugnarowski, is likely to be withdrawn by the 31-year-old. The Green averaged 6.4 points and 4.2 rebounds in 16 minutes for the Nuggets last year.

The deal will save Nuggets about $20 million as they likely pay their luxury tax next season. Even with trade, it’s still about 6 million higher, but now it has created a trade exception of 8.2 million and is a little more flexible.
