Bucks trade Roy Hibbert to Nuggets for second-round pick

The Milwaukee Bucks have sent center Roy Hibbert to the Denver Nuggets for a future protected second-round pick.

Hibbert, who is 7-foot-2, is averaging 5.2 points and 3.6 rebounds in 42 games this season for Milwaukee and the Charlotte Hornets, who traded Hibbert to the Bucks earlier this month.

Hibbert signed a one-year, $5 million deal with Charlotte before this season but has been slowed by injuries.
