Nuggets Don’t Match Raptors Offer For Forbes

Gary Forbes is the latest Denver Nuggets reserve to leave to play for the Toronto Raptors.

The Denver Nuggets did not match the Raptors offer sheet for Forbes, who will join Linas Kleiza, Sonny Weems and recently signed Anthony Carter in Toronto.

There was a rumor Tuesday morning that the Nuggets would match the offer and keep Forbes, but the rumor had very like validity – partly because the original source said a deal could happen as early as today (Tuesday). But in order for the Nuggets to match an offer sheet for Forbes it couldn’t be done ANY LATER than today.

Forbes was a good role player, but hardly worth the money that the Raptors threw at him. For the role he played on the Nuggets, he is easily replaceable.
