From Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post,
Kosta Koufos has been traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, two NBA sources confirmed Thursday, in exchange for Darrell Arthur and the 55th pick in Thursday’s draft.
Koufos, 24, averaged 8.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game in 81 games for the Denver Nuggets in the 2012-13 season. He started in all of the regular season games in which he appeared. Koufos’s presence will be a welcome addition to the Grizzlies as a capable backup center to Marc Gasol, who was sixth among all centers in minutes per game last season at 35.0. Koufos attended Mike Conley’s alma mater, Ohio State.
