Another trade has been closed in an NBA market that in the final hours is getting into full swing ahead of free agency that opens Friday. I Denver Nuggets have surrendered Monte Morris and Will Barton at Washington Wizards, taking the reverse route are. Ish Smith and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
An important trade especially for the Nuggets, who let go of two important players who were starters last season. In return they get Caldwell-Pope, traded for the second consecutive summer: the guard scored 13.2 points on average last season at the Wizards..
Deal is getting final approvals now, and expected to be completed soon, sources said. https://t.co/FNfcClRBUV
