The Denver Nuggets have reportedly included Bol Bol in a trade package offered to the New Orleans Pelicans for point guard Lonzo Ball. According to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, the 7′ 2″ center was mentioned in early discourse between the two teams.

“Denver has repeatedly been mentioned by league sources as a Ball suitor, rumored to have offered Bol Bol in those early conversations,” Fischer writes. “Yet New Orleans did have the opportunity to select the Oregon product in the 2019 draft, plus the opportunity to sign him to a two-way contract, sources said, and the Pelicans came away with Brazilian combo guard Didi Louzada instead.”

The second-year player is averaging just over five minutes a game for the Nuggets this season and would benefit from added playing time. Should the Pelicans bite, they would likely offer him just that.
