Nuggets trading Monte Morris, Will Barton to Wizards

The Denver Nuggets are finalizing a deal to trade Monte Morris and Will Barton to the Washington Wizards for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Ish Smith.

Denver made that move to have some financial flexibility, while Washington adds a pair of key veteran players next to Bradley Beal.

Monte Morris averaged 12.6 points and 4.4 assists for the Nuggets last season, while Barton had 14.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. The Wizards aims to make the playoffs next season and such moves help them increase their depth.

On the other hand, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is a decent 3-and-D player and a great fit around Nikola Jokic. He averaged 13.2 points, on 39% from beyond the arc and this will be his third team in the last three seasons.
