Bol Bol Dealt to Pistons; Nuggets Get Rodney McGruder, Draft Pick

Bleacher Report

The Denver Nuggets are trading Bol Bol to the Detroit Pistons for Rodney McGruder and a 2022 second-round draft pick from the Brooklyn Nets, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Bol has played 81 minutes over 14 games for Denver this season, scoring 33 points and hauling in 20 rebounds.

McGruder has been used similarly sparingly by the Pistons, averaging 2.5 points and 1.6 rebounds in 9.5 minutes per game over 17 appearances.

The 30-year-old, who's due to earn $1.9 million this season, might be more valuable to Denver as an expendable veteran whose departure would create a new spot on the roster.

The 8-30 Pistons, meanwhile, had little need for an experienced guard on an expiring deal. Trading away McGruder for an opportunity to have a prolonged look at Bol is a sensible gamble for a franchise in rebuilding mode.
