Detroit Pistons trade for Nuggets F Bol Bol voided after failed physical

Detroit Free Press

The Detroit Pistons’ trade for Denver Nuggets forward Bol Bol has been voided after the organization found an issue with Bol’s physical, according to a report from the Denver Post. 

The Pistons released a statement on Thursday stating that the trade was rescinded “because medical clearance was not received for all players involved.”

If completed, the trade would’ve sent Rodney McGruder and Brooklyn’s 2022 second-round pick to Denver. Bol has appeared in 14 games with the Nuggets this season, averaging 2.4 points and 1.4 rebounds in 5.8 minutes per game.

A five-star recruit in 2018, Bol played nine games at Oregon before missing the rest of his freshman season with a stress fracture in his left foot. He was drafted 44th overall in 2019.

The last time the Pistons voided a trade was in 2016, when a three-team trade that would’ve brought then-Houston Rockets center Donatas Motiejunas to Detroit was rescinded after he failed a physical with Pistons team doctors.
