Shortly before the NBA trade deadline for 2018, the Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, and Dallas Mavericks completed a three-way deal.
This deal saw the Nuggets sending Emmanuel Mudiay to New York. A 21-year-old guard, Mudiay was picked up by the Nuggets in 2015. He started 66 out of 68 games during his rookie year and achieved a 31.9 percent rate of three-point shots. Unfortunately, his next season saw this average drop significantly and he only managed to maintain a 37.5 percent shooting average, a poor number for point guards. However, he still has time to change his performance for the Knicks.
In return for Mudiay, the Nuggets got Devin Harris from the Mavs. Harris has a 60.6 percent shooting average and has the reliability that the Nuggets were looking for in a backup point guard. The Mavs and Nuggets also exchanged second-round picks for the 2018 draft as part of this deal.
