Bryn Forbes (to DEN) is on an expiring contract ($4.5M).
Denver is $1.5M below the tax and opens up a roster spot.

Farewell again to Bryn Forbes. Glad he landed with another contender, who the Spurs will face on April 5 in Denver. – 1:01 AM

Bryn Forbes’ second stint with the Spurs apparently has come to a not-so-surprising end. Could Thad Young be next?…12:49 AM

Boston Celtics trade Juancho Hernangomez in three-team salary-clearing deal…12:48 AM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Here’s the answer to a question I’ve seen in my mentions.
YES, the Spurs can still trade Juancho to another team before the 02/10 deadline.
NO, the Spurs can’t aggregate Juancho and Thad’s deals together by 02/10. They have to wait 2 months to do that. – 12:32 AM

ESPN story on the Denver Nuggets acquiring San Antonio Spurs’ guard Bryn Forbes in a three-team deal that includes the Boston Celtics: AM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Last season, Bryn Forbes had 3+ made threes 12 times out of 40 games played with the Milwaukee Bucks.
This season, the entire Nuggets bench has 23 such times in 42 games. – 12:21 AM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
I’ll say this: Getting off some of Juancho Hernangomez’s money for Boston without giving up a draft pick would be a win, especially if front office is being asked to get under the tax line. – 12:16 AM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Bryn Forbes played in 20/23 playoff games for Bucks on their way to the championship last season. He had two 22-point games in the 1st round vs. the Heat. Forbes can step up and make a 3 in high-leverage situations. He can get hot in a hurry. AM

Michael Singer @msinger
The #Nuggets have been struggling to shoot from 3, & Bryn Forbes addresses that need. In addition, Denver flipped 2 guys (+ ’28 2nd rd) who weren’t going to play for the forseeable future into a useful player. Finally: They also opened up a roster spot.…12:10 AM

Quick write-up on the Spurs acquiring Juan Herngomez and trading Bryn Forbes to Denver:…12:04 AM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Bryn Forbes is in the 78th percentile on spot ups, 39th percentile on handoffs, and the 81st percentile coming off screens.
He shot 41.7% on catch-and-shoot threes.
He did that in San Antonio.
Welcome to Denver. Enjoy Nikola Jokić passes. – 11:56 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
I had heard Bryn Forbes linked to the #Nuggets as recently as today, in fact, but didn’t know it was imminent. Nuggets had been looking for upgrades on the wing. Anyone who could shoot/defend, I was told, was on their radar at that position. – 11:55 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
The second-round pick from Denver is headed to San Antonio, Bol + P.J. are going to Boston, source says. #Nuggets land Bryn Forbes. – 11:50 PM
Vinny Benedetto @VBenedetto
League source confirms the Nuggets are sending Bol Bol and PJ Dozier to Boston in a three-team deal that brings sharpshooter Bryn Forbes to Denver, as first reported by @Adrian Wojnarowski.
@CSGazetteSports @DenverGazette11:38 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
From today’s show: Bryn Forbes, a 41% career 3-point shooter and one of the best shooters available on the trade market, is coming to Denver. PM

Michael De Leon @mdeleon
Spurs adding some frontcourt depth with trade for Juancho Hernangomez #PorVida11:36 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Can confirm 3-way deal between #Nuggets, Spurs and Celtics, which lands Bryn Forbes in Denver, and sends Bol and P.J. to Boston. Juancho Hernangomez to SA.
@Adrian Wojnarowski first reported. – 11:31 PM
Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA
The Celtics should have tried a little harder to get Bryn Forbes lol – 11:28 PM
Adam Mares @Adam_Mares
I love Dozier and hate to see him go but Davon Reed seems to be a similar type player for Denver.
Bryn Forbes can shoot. He will probably be the best shooter on the roster (other than Murray and Porter). – 11:27 PM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
Denver, Boston and San Antonio are making a three-way trade that includes Juancho Hernangomez to Spurs, Bryn Forbes to Denver, Bol Bol and PJ Dozier to Celtics, sources tell ESPN. – 11:23 PM

More on this storyline

Mike Singer: #Nuggets are also sending out a second-round pick in the deal, source tells @denverpost . -via Twitter @msinger / January 18, 2022
Brian Robb: Celtics acquiring an injured Bol Bol and PJ Dozier is effectively a salary dump for the present. Allows team to cut about $4 million in salary (avoiding tax territory) and maybe get a look at some intriguing young guys once they get healthy. Assume 2nd round pick sent out too. -via Twitter @BrianTRobb / January 18, 2022
Juancho Hernangomez was brought to potentially be the primary backup power forward who can play some small-ball center. That role has been locked up by Grant Williams and fellow third-stringer Jabari Parker has played 27 minutes more than Hernangomez. He could become available soon if he isn’t already, especially since the Celtics are $6.3 million above the luxury tax. Salary dumping Hernangomez would get the struggling Celtics completely under the luxury tax. -via HoopsHype / November 11, 2021
