Nets' and Wizards' trade of Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough for Andrew Nicholson, guard Marcus Thornton and 2017 protected first round draft pick officially goes through. Wizards add much-needed bench scoring and unload Nicholson's salary. Nets gain a first-round pick and veteran stretch scoring forward in Nicholson. "Bojan is a very good shooter and a talented overall scorer whose versatility gives us an added dimension as we gear up for the stretch run," said Washington president Ernie Grunfeld. "He is a proven starter that will provide us an added boost off the bench and allow us to be creative with our lineups."
