The Denver Nuggets are reportedly trading forward Bol Bol to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for guard Rodney McGruder and a 2022 second-round pick, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

A second-round pick in the 2019 Draft, Bol has played in just 14 games for the Nuggets this season, averaging 2.4 points and 1.4 rebounds. The 7-foot-2 forward reportedly joins a young Pistons team focused on a rebuild largely around 2021 No. 1 pick Cade Cunningham.

McGruder, 30, is playing in his sixth season, averaging 2.4 points and 1.6 rebounds in 2021-22.
