Report: Grizzlies Trade Darrell Arthur and 55th Pick to Nuggets for Kosta Koufos.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Grizzlies make their first move of the night, and it isn't selecting a player in the draft.

Many thought the Grizzlies would try to move Arthur tonight, but most thought it would be to free up cap space. In an unexpected trade, the Grizzlies will reportedly send Arthur and tonight's 55th pick to the Nuggets for Kosta Koufos according to a report by ESPN's Marc Stein.

My first impression is YESSSSSSSSSS! This is a brilliant trade. The Griz get rid of a role player that has diminished value because he can't stay healthy and the 55th pick for a role player that fills a need for the Grizzlies and can do a lot of things well on the court. Koufos is a high-energy guy that can rebound like crazy, block shots at a decent rate, and finish very adeptly at the rim. This is a great trade for the Grizzlies even if it frees up no cap space. Welcome Kosta!
