Petro Dealt To Nuggets

The up and coming Nuggets finally added another big to their line up, after seldom used Chucky Atkins was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in return for Frenchman Johan Petro and the Thunder’s 2009 second-round pick. The addition of Petro will help the Nuggets significantly against the likes of front court stacked teams in the West such as the Suns, Blazers and Lakers.

During his time with the Thunder, Petro had averages of 4.6 points and 4.3 rebounds per game and led the Thunder in the preseason with 8.0 rebounds per game.
