Pistons sending Bol back to Nuggets after failed physical: report


For three days, Bol Bol was a Piston. Now he's a Nugget again.

After acquiring Bol from the Nuggets Monday in exchange for Rodney McGrude and a second-round pick, a move that was officially announced by both teams, the Pistons have reneged on the trade after Bol failed their physical, according to the Denver Post.

The 7'2 forward suffered a season-ending foot injury in his lone season at Oregon in 2018-19, but hasn't dealt with any major injuries over his three years in the NBA. The Nuggets "were taken aback" by his failed physical in Detroit, per the Denver Post.

Bol, one of the top recruits in the country in 2018, has yet to find his footing in the NBA. He's averaged 2.7 points and 1.2 boards in 53 career games, but he was in line for a bigger role in Detroit. He's heading back to Denver instead.

And McGruder is coming back to Detroit. The 30-year-old wing has averaged 2.5 points in 17 games this season.
