The Denver Nuggets are finalizing a deal to acquire guard R.J. Hampton from New Orleans for a future protected first-round pick, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the trade hasn't been announced.

Hampton and Nnaji join a young Nuggets nucleus that also includes sharpshooter Michael Porter Jr.
Nnaji, 19, was a solid all-around low post force for the Wildcats during the truncated 2019-20 NCAA season, averaging 16.1 points, 8.8 rebounds while shooting an impressive 58.6 percent from the field.Читайте также: Dolly Parton helped pay for the COVID-19 vaccine
Nnaji, who's 6-foot-11 and 240-pound, is looking forward to working alongside Jokic.
He's a superstar. He's one of the best centers in the league, Nnaji said. His vision and passing is incredible. The move adds much-needed depth to a Nuggets frontcourt which has three significant free agents heading into the offseason in Jerami Grant, Paul Millsap and Mason Plumlee. Denver also has 7-foot-2 center Bol Bol, but he's more of a wing sort of player.
But their extended stay inside the National Basketball Association bubble was halted when LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers sent them packing after Game 5.
