The Denver Nuggets are acquiring the least favorable of Oklahoma City’s first-round picks in 2024, the 37th pick in the 2023 draft, and the 2024 second-round pick for a protected 2029 first-round. The Nuggets are trying to maximize their championship window and this deal gives them some additional chances at low-cost contracts and trade tools. For OKC, another first-round pick deep into the future. Denver still owes Oklahoma City a 2027 Top-5 protected first-round pick.
