The Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to trade Jerami Grant to the Denver Nuggets for a 2020 first round pick.

The deal saves the Thunder $39 million in salary and tax.

Danilo Gallinari will start for the Thunder at power forward this season, which made Grant expendable.

Denver absorbs Grant's $9 million salary into the trade exception created with the Wilson Chandler deal to Philadelphia on July 8, 2018.
