Nuggets trade Mudiay to Knicks, acquire Devin Harris in three-way trade

09 February, 2018, 03:47 | Author: Laura Christensen

As first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks have agreed to send sharpshooter Doug McDermott to the Dallas Mavericks and a 2018 second round pick (via the Los Angeles Clippers) to the Denver Nuggets.

The Nuggets were rumored for months to have been looking to dump Mudiay, and finally were able to do so just hours before the deadline.

However, in NY he will certainly get a chance at some playing time as the team is still trying to bring along rookie Frank Ntilikina and phasing out veteran Jarrett Jack.

Mudiay is coming off a tough two seasons for the Nuggets.

Acquiring Evans, who is averaging 19.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game this season - his best numbers since his rookie year with the Sacramento Kings - would mean getting a quality scorer that can propel their chances at a strong seed in the ultra-competitive West.

McDermott averaged 7.2 points in 55 games for the Knicks. The thirteenth year guard figures to bring valuable leadership and playoff experience, something that generally lacks with a youthful Denver Nuggets roster. Whether or not the trade is a success likely will not be properly determined for several years, regardless of Harris' performance the remainder of 2018 with the Nuggets.

The Nuggets acquire a veteran point guard in Devin Harris, playing in his 16th National Basketball Association season this year.

Denver has also looked to use a pick in hopes to incentivize teams to take on Kenneth Faried's remaining $26.7 million contract, as he keeps racking up DNPs within Malone's system.
