Denver Nuggets Trade Emmanuel Mudiay to NY in Three-Team Deal

Denver Nuggets Trade Emmanuel Mudiay to NY in Three-Team Deal

The Knicks get the Blazers' second-rounder from the Nuggets and Denver gets the Clippers' second-round pick from NY.

Emmanuel Mudiay was always going to be the odd man out in Denver and now he is on his way to NY.

Dallas will send point guard Devin Harris and a future second-round pick to Denver. The NBA journeyman, who also played for New Jersey (2008-11), Utah (2011-12) and Atlanta (2012-13) before returning to Dallas, is on an expiring $4.4 million contract, meaning he will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

McDermott averaged 7.2 points and 2.4 rebounds in 21.3 minutes off the bench for the Knicks this season. Neither team has a shot of making the playoffs. He started 107 games over his first two National Basketball Association campaigns but didn't start any this season.

Deputy dies, three others hospitalized after shooting
Authorities say a auto theft suspect fired a semi-automatic handgun during a shootout that left a Colorado sheriff's deputy dead. Adams County sheriff's Deputy Heath Gumm, 31, died January 24 after being shot while chasing a suspect, AP reports.

Mudiay has averaged career lows in points and minutes per game thus far this season, and has taken a back seat role to break-out point guard Jamaal Murray. The Nuggets selected Mudiay seventh overall in the 2015 NBA Draft.

ANYWAY, Harris just got traded again, this time to Denver. Ntilikina is also 6'5, and those two can coexist in the same backcourt, and probably even in a three-guard lineup with Tim Hardaway Jr.

As is the case with McDermott, Mudiay gets a chance to rediscover his potential on a new team. The Denver Nuggets hosted the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday, December 28, 2016.
