|Ish Smith: Dealt to Denver|
Smith was traded to the Nuggets from the Wizards on Wednesday, along with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, in exchange for Will Barton and Monte Morris, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Scoop: For Denver, the motivation behind the deal appears to be ducking the luxury tax line to begin the year, as Smith's deal is fully non-guaranteed. With that in mind, it's unclear if the Nuggets plan to keep the veteran point guard, who joins his NBA-record 13th team. If he does stick around, the 33-year-old Smith will primarily compete with Bones Hyland for minutes behind Jamal Murray (knee).
