Bryn Forbes dealt to Nuggets in 3-team trade

San Antonio adds a versatile wing in Juancho Hernangomez while Boston adds Bol Bol, P.J. Dozier and gets closer to avoiding the luxury tax.

Bryn Forbes has made 41.7% of his 3-pointers this season, something that could provide a big boost to Denver’s bench.

The Denver Nuggets, Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs have agreed to a trade that includes the Nuggets’ Juancho Hernangomez going to San Antonio, the Spurs’ Bryn Forbes going to Denver and the Nuggets’ Bol Bol and P.J. Dozier going to Boston, the teams announced on Wednesday.

Here are the complete details of the deal:

Nuggets receive:

  • Byrn Forbes

Celtics receive:

  • Bol Bol
  • P.J. Dozier

Spurs receive:

  • Juancho Hernangomez
  • 2028 second-round pick (via Nuggets)
  • Cash considerations

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report the deal on Tuesday.

For the Celtics, the move gets them close to getting out of the luxury tax completely. Boston has an open roster spot after cutting Jabari Parker earlier this month. It also made the move knowing that Bol will miss 8-12 weeks after deciding to undergo foot surgery, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Dozier is out for the season with a torn ACL and will be a free agent.

Hernangomez, meanwhile, gives the Spurs a versatile wing with some rebounding ability, having averaged 7.3 boards just two seasons ago for the Timberwolves. For his career, the 26-year-old is averaging 5.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 15.7 minutes.

The Nuggets are adding some shooting to their bench with Forbes, who is averaging 9.1 points and 41.7% shooting from beyond the arc. For his career, the 28-year-old is averaging 41.3% on 3-pointers.
