Jerami Grant was a key piece for the Thunder last season.

The Denver Nuggets have acquired forward Jerami Grant from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a 2020 first-round pick, the teams announced on Monday.

Grant is fresh off the most productive season of his five-year career. He posted career-high averages of 13.6 points and 5.2 rebounds over 80 games for the Thunder last season. The 25-year-old will provide length and defensive versatility to a Nuggets squad with their eyes on contending for a championship.

Oklahoma City adds another first-round pick to its stash after acquiring five from the LA Clippers in the reported deal for Paul George. The deal will also save the Thunder $39 million in salary, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, who first reported the trade.
