Nuggets Aquire 2nd Rounder From Bulls

By  | 

The Denver Nuggets jumped back into the NBA draft, acquiring Sonny Weems from the Chicago Bulls in a three-team trade.

The Arkansas guard/forward was selected by the Bulls with the 39th overall pick before being shipped to the Nuggets Thursday night.

In the trade, the Bulls ended up with the draft rights to center Omer Asik of Turkey, who was selected 36th overall by Portland. The Blazers ended up with Denver's second-round pick in 2009, New York's second-round spot in '09, which was owned by Chicago, and the Bulls' second-rounder in 2010.

Denver had Denver traded out of the draft Wednesday, sending its spot at No. 20 to the Charlotte Bobcats for a future, protected first-round selection. The Bobcats parlayed that pick into center Alexis Ajinca of France.

The 6-foot-6, 203-pound Weems averaged 15 points and 4.5 rebounds a game last season for the Razorbacks.
