Jeff Green remaining with the Nuggets is good news for the squad, as he is a player that can offer decent solutions on both ends. In addition, Denver could use him as a trade asset in offseason.
After failing to have a deep playoff run, the Nuggets aim to return to title contention next season. With Jamal Murray returning to action and Nikola Jokic set to perform at the highest level once again, Denver is already considered a title contender in the West.
Thanasis Antetokounmpo exercises option with Bucks; Orlando’s Terrence Ross available for trade
Milwaukee Bucks’ forward Thanasis Antetokounmpo has exercised his $1.88 million player option for next season, Michael Scotto of Hoops Hype reports. Giannis’ brother saw action in 48 regular season games last season.
He averaged 3.6 points and 2.1 rebounds in 9.9. minutes per game. He also played in eight postseason games after playing 13 playoff games during the Bucks’ championship run in the 2020-21 season.
The Philadelphia 76ers are shopping the 23rd overall pick aggressively along with Danny Green to add an impact player who can contribute immediately, per Mike Scotto. So, anyone, who will be picked at 23 will likely be moved for a win-now piece.
Terrence Ross of the Orlando Magic has entered the last season of his current deal, and he’s expected to get traded for the rebuilding South Florida franchise, per Scotto. At the trade deadline, the asking price for Ross was a first-round pick.
Now with the danger of losing him for nothing, NBA teams hope for the Magic to lower their asking price and receive multiple second-round picks. Ross appeared in 63 games this past season and averaged the worst shooting splits of his career.
He shot 39 percent from the field and 29 percent from deep with averages of 10.0 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists.
