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.
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.
