Wizards acquire Nets' Bogdanovic for Nicholson, first-round pick

Alyssa BaileyFeb 24, 2017

It's important to note that such a trade likely only happened due to the aforementioned Nicholson contract.

Washington has now traded two first round picks in a row. Thornton was part of trade with Washington today. Washington's 2017 pick was not like the others.

Trading Nicholson means getting rid of the questionable four-year, $26 million deal they signed him to last summer.

As noted by The Vertical, the Washington Wizards, who have struggled to get consistent production from their bench all season, get a proven contributor in Bojan Bogdanovic.

Bogdanovic should provide instant support for the Wizards' bench.

Dozens of patients on gurneys were seen being wheeled out to a waiting box truck where they appeared to be receiving treatment. It is named after businessman Ben Taub, an influential philanthropist in Houston's development during the 1960s and '70s.

He offers very little aside from scoring, as his passing is suspect (averaging a career-high 1.6 assists per game) and his rebounding is mediocre (averaging a career-high 3.6 rebounds per game).

With an open roster spot and needing frontcourt help, the Cavaliers met with Larry Sanders, the free-agent forward who stepped away from the game following the 2014-15 season. Trading for Bogdanovic gives the Wizards an automatic boost to their bench production, acquiring a player who is now shooting 44 percent from the field and 35 percent from three-point land.

Burke will earn $3.4 million this season and is on the books for $4.6 million next season.

McCullough has spent most of the season in the NBA Development League.

"Chris is an intriguing prospect", Grunfeld said.

McCullough was taken 29th overall in the 2015 NBA Draft, but hasn't lived up to expectations. Considering he did so with Kelly Oubre Jr., a 20-year-old who's still adjusting to the National Basketball Association game, utilizing a proven scorer who can catch-and-shoot shouldn't be an issue.

This leaves the Nets with two first-round picks this year. Nicholson's ability to rebound and stretch the floor fits what Brooklyn is asking of their big men and his contract isn't onerous for a team that is in the middle of a multiple season rebuild.

Bodganovic beefs up the Wizards' thin bench as they head toward the postseason.

It's the second consecutive season the Wizards traded their first-round pick at the deadline after acquiring power forwardMarkieff Morris from the Phoenix Suns in 2016.

If the Wizards want to do another move, the most obvious target would be Darren Collison, but it's unlikely they could acquire him without giving up another future first-round pick.
