Just days ago there seemed to be no end in sight in the Dwight Howard drama, but on Friday it became official that Howard was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in a 4-team blockbuster trade. In the 12-player deal the Nuggets received Andre Iguodala.
In the deal, Denver traded starting shooting guard Arron Afflalo, top reserve Al Harrington and a pair of draft picks.
Iguodala took to Twitter after the trade was done,
Trade is official. My thanks to Philly and Sixers fans for your support over the last 8 yrs.
I’m excited to be joining the
@denvernuggets and I know my best basketball is ahead of me!
Now back to the task at hand…
The trade also frees up a roster spot for the Nuggets to sign second-round draft pick Quincy Miller.
Iguodala and the Nuggets open the regular season at Philadelphia against the Sixers.
