I like this trade for both teams, assuming Arthur can stay healthy.

Enter Javale McGee.

Nuggets really want McGee starting apparently. Arthur could help them though.

I love it from the Grizzlies perspective. Hollins refused to play Davis to prove a point and continued to play Arthur even though he was under producing. Now Ed Davis gets more minutes and Koufos can be a legit back up Center when needed. Griz will resign Jon Leuer as a jump shooting/hustle PF off the bench when needed.

Good trade for both teams

Kosta is the definition of solid, but had a major dissapearing act in the playoffs.

Nuggets will re-sign Mozgov who would have left if we still had Kosta

FT shooting was one of our main problems last season, and should be much better now without Kosta and Brewer (we'll still have igggy hopefully)

We get a big who comes from a great defensive team and can hit the mid-range jumper (something we havent had in years) + one of the PG's that impressed in workouts (Erick Green)

I hope Kosta does well in Memphis!

This means more consistent PT for Davis, which he needs. Also it would really help to conserve Zbo. He's getting old, and looked gassed by the Spurs series.

Doesn't Javale have asthma? He is best suited coming off the bench in spurts.

who told you this? George Karl?

he was fired because he refused to play McGee (and failing to get to the 2nd round year after year)

Solid rebounder/defender and good spot up shooter with decent explosiveness. He's the only Nugget big who can hit long 2's and will fit in well. Good trade for Nuggets imo gives them more spacing and a actually pick n pop threat off the bench.

some believe McGee and Faried wont be the best pairing defensively. And I get where they are coming from

Maybe Arthur even ends up starting alongside McGee. With Faried being a major boost of the bench playing 30mpg

So McGee will get a big amount of minutes?

I guess in the end the only person happy about this will be Shaq

McGee and Faried can't start together, they don't have any offensive moves except dunks and their defense is average.

I'm baffled on why they traded Kosta, he was the only big man that was actually a basketball player.

The other 2 are just incredible athletes.
