Nuggets acquires Bryn Forbes in three-team deal that sends Bol Bol, PJ Dozier away, says source – The Denver Post

The Nuggets, Spurs and Celtics agreed on a three-team deal late Tuesday night that will send Bryn Forbes to Denver and Bol Bol and PJ Dozier to Boston, a league source confirmed to The Denver Post.

Boston’s Juancho Hernangomez is on his way to San Antonio in the deal.

In addition, the Nuggets are sending a second-round pick in 2028 to San Antonio, a source told The Post.

The move not only loses the Nuggets from two injured players (Dozier is out for the season with a torn ACL; Bol is out indefinitely after undergoing right foot surgery on Tuesday), but it lands Denver for its coveted shooting guard. It also frees up a list space for future flexibility.

The Nuggets had targeted an elite shooter, a source said, and Forbes marks that field. With 34.5% 3-point shooting as a team, the Nuggets were in the bottom half of the NBA.

Due to injuries and COVID protocols, the Nuggets have also been thin on the backcourt. Forbes averages 9.1 points on nearly 42% shooting from the 3-point line. The reserve guard had on average almost 17 minutes per. match for Spurs this season. Last season, he averaged 10.0 points on 45.2% shooting from 3 for final NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks.
