The Lakers have completed a four-team trade, sending center Thomas Bryant to the Denver Nuggets.

The deal involved the LA Clippers and Orlando Magic and saw Denver receive Bryant, with the Lakers receiving guard Davon Reed and a second-round pick, and the Clippers receiving guard Bones Hyland.

Bryant will wear the number 13 jersey for the Nuggets. The arrival of Bryant gives the Nuggets another big man to support two-time NBA MVP Nikola Jokic.

This season, Bryant has been averaging 12.1 points and 6.8 rebounds while shooting 65.4% from the floor.

The 25-year-old was selected in the second round by Utah in 2017, but was soon traded to the Lakers. Reed, who has only played sparingly for the Nuggets this season, is averaging 2.3 points.

The Nuggets are currently top of the Western Conference, with Jokic posting a triple-double average, but the competition has become more challenging with the arrivals of Kyrie Irving in Dallas and Kevin Durant to the Phoenix Suns.

Jokic is also receiving support from max players Jamal Murray, Michael Porter Jr, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Bruce Brown, and Aaron Gordon.

The Nuggets recently scored their highest points of the season in a 146-112 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Jokic posted his 19th triple-double of the season by halftime.
