Rudy Fernandez, Corey Brewer Head To Denver Nuggets, 2nd Round Pick Goes To Dallas Mavericks, According To Report

The Denver Nuggets have acquired Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer from the Dallas Mavericks for a future second round selection, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. If we break this down, the Nuggets basically wound up with two players that had been involved in trades with the Nuggets during the 2010-11 season.

Fernandez was involved in the three-team deal between the Nuggets, the Mavericks and the Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers sent Fernandez to the Mavericks to acquire rookie Jordan Hamilton, who was then sent to the Nuggets to complete the deal. Now Fernandez gets to be teammates with Hamilton and Andre Miller, who also went from Portland to Denver.

Brewer was involved in the Carmelo Anthony trade when the Minnesota Timberwolves sent him to the New York Knicks. The Knicks waived him a few days later and he signed with the Mavericks a few days later.

Brewer is set to make slightly over $3 million this season while Fernandez makes close to $2.2 million. The Mavericks get salary relief this year and next, though Fernandez has a player option for next year.
