EVERY TRADE WE WILL SEE THIS SEASON: DENVER NUGGETS – SACRAMENTO KINGS (TRADE DEADLINE)

EVERY TRADE WE WILL SEE THIS SEASON: TRADE 3 (TRADE DEADLINE)

DENVER NUGGETS GET: 2019 Second Most Favorable Of Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets or Orlando Magic Second Round Draft Pick

SACRAMENTO KINGS GET: Tyler Lydon

The Denver Nuggets bail on developing Tyler Lydon and decide to cash in with a likely to be early second round draft pick. More importantly, they create a roster spot to use their Traded Player Exceptions to add talent from teams trying to get below the luxury tax. Overall, Lydon doesn’t seem like he has a fit in Denver so using him to add a second round pick and a roster spot is reasonable.

The Sacramento Kings take a shot on Lydon being a better fit with them than he was in Denver. Lydon seems to have potential and has flashes of showing it, but couldn’t consistently put it together in Denver. The Kings are further from contention than the Nuggets and could have more patience with his development and occasionally young mistakes.
