Nuggets trade with Houston for White

The Nuggets acquired swingman James White from the Houston Rockets in exchange for the draft rights to forward Axel Hervelle, a 2005 pick who has yet to play in the NBA. White has an average of 5.7 points and 2.0 rebounds in 10 career games with San Antonio and Houston.

    I think now, they really CAN claim to be better than Kobe.

    White can play, his jumpshot improved sooo much the last 2 years and his athleticism is um, good.
    If he can apply himself defensively the way he did with his jumpshot, then I don’t see why he can’t be another Dahntay Jones for the Nuggets. Although for White to be starting over some of the other guys at the 2/3 spots is kinda messed up.
    I don’t know sh*t about Axel Herville though, but I doubt Darryl Morey would just randomly trade for him.
    Which reminds me that I think we (Houston)own the rights to Fred Weis still? (the guy Vince teabagged in the Olympics – no he did not *just* jump over him thankyou very much!)

    Just pray he sticks with the team until All-Star break. Guaranteed dunk contest winner if they let him enter.

    yeah he should work in the system and i’m desperate to see this guy jump from behind the free throw line between the legs again

  • underdog

    Flight White! I hope he gets some minutes.

  • Si

    Why would we go and swap White for this guy……

    I wanna see the in-practice dunk contests between him and JR Smith.

  • fireman10101

    I hope he become a defender cuz it should be nice to see him on a fast break

    Chauncey gotta be licking his lips thinking about the endless fastbreak opportunities!

    Well NOW what Kenyon Martin said makes sense. He must’ve known about this blockbuster deal in advance.

    Does this call for instant access into the Dunk Contest?

  • whooo!

    the Nuggets continue to try to build the greatest dunking / most athletic team of all time.

    If James White enters the dunk contest it’s over already

    Why did Houston do this? James White was doing well in the D-League, like 26PPG, and in their All Star dunk contest, won handily, behind the FT line Dunk again. Could’ve used a proven and upcoming player rather than another prospect who will need more time to grow, they need more players right now.

    I echo Hursty’s sentiment. Being teabagged must be worse than being hurdled.
