Wizards trade Isaiah Thomas to Clippers, Jordan McRae to Nuggets

The Washington Wizards made multiple moves just before Thursday’s NBA trade deadline, dealing guard Isaiah Thomas to the Los Angeles Clippers for Jerome Robinson as part of a three-team trade and sending veteran swingman Jordan McRae to the Denver Nuggets for guard Shabazz Napier.

As part of the three-team Thomas trade, Washington will also send the draft rights of 20-year-old Ukrainian point guard Issuf Sanon to the New York Knicks.

As expected, however, Washington retained one of its most attractive assets in Davis Bertans, an upcoming free agent who was recently named one of eight participants in the three-point contest at All-Star Weekend. Although Bertans, a 6-foot-10 forward, prompted interest from several playoff contenders, Washington did not get an offer to its liking. The Wizards will now aim to re-sign him.
