DENVER — The Denver Nuggets have bolstered their front court by acquiring 25-year-old Jerami Grant from the Oklahoma City Thunder for a 2020 first-round pick.

It's an additional first-round selection for the Thunder, who are in line for at least four more assuming the blockbuster deal that sends Paul George to the Los Angeles Clippers goes through. It would also give Oklahoma City the rights to as many as 13 first-round picks over the next seven drafts.

The deal was announced Monday.
