Nuggets trade Kosta Koufos to Memphis for Darrell Arthur, pick
Nuggets trade starting center Kosta Koufos to the Memphis Grizzlies for Darrell Arthur and a draft pick.
Very quietly, an NBA playoff team traded their starting center on draft night and hardly anyone noticed.
Koufos started 81 games for the Nuggets last season, and was a team leader in plus/minus under head coach George Karl. Nuggets managment reportedly wanted JaVae McGee to start and that in part lead to their decision to part ways with Karl. Moving Koufos forces JaVale McGee into the starting spot.
The same benefit is given to the Grizzlies, whose new management wanted Ed Davis to get more time but who was buried behind Darrell Arthur for Lionel Hollins. Koufos gives the Grizzlies a legit backup center they've needed for several seasons behind DPOY Marc Gasol.
Koufos averaged eight points and seven rebounds last season for the Nuggets, Arthur averaged six points and three rebounds last season after returning from a leg injury.
