There's no doubt the Denver Nuggets were one of the most improved teams around the association after the NBA trade deadline.
Not only did they add a third 'star' in Aaron Gordon, but also they recruited one of the best rim protectors in the entire league.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Denver Nuggets have finalized a deal to acquire center JaVale McGee from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In exchange, the Cavaliers get center Isaiah Hartenstein and two future protected second-round picks.

McGee is averaging 8.0 points per game, along with 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 33 games as a reserve for the Cavs this season. He will be a backup to All-Star big man Nikola Jokic.
McGee, who started his career with the Washington Wizards, played for the Nuggets from 2011-15 before stops with the Philadelphia 76ers, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland.
The center is also a three-time NBA Champion with the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers.
