The Detroit Pistons acquired center Bol Bol from the Nuggets on Sunday, sending guard Rodney McGruder and a 2022 second-round pick to Denver, multiple outlets reported.

With the trade, the Pistons are gaining size in the 7-foot-2 Bol, something that has been lacking on their roster.


Bol, 22, was the 44th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. He has appeared in only 53 games (two starts), averaging 2.7 points and 1.2 rebounds over 6.2 minutes per game.


In 14 games with the Nuggets this season, he’s averaging 5.8 minutes, 2.4 points and 1.4 rebounds game. He is a son of former NBA center Manute Bol.

McGruder, 30, is in his second season with the Pistons after spending time with the Miami Heat (2016-19) and Los Angeles Clippers (2019-20). In 17 games this season, the 6-foot-4 guard is averaging 2.5 points over 9.5 minutes per game.

He has career averages of 5.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 251 games (118 starts.)
