    Finally! The missing piece of the puzzle.

    Nuggets, Rockets, 76ers agree to three-way trade

    By CHRIS SHERIDAN, AP Basketball Writer

    The Nuggets, Rockets and 76ers agreed to a three-way trade Wednesday that sends James Posey to Houston, Kenny Thomas to Philadelphia and Mark Bryant and Art Long to Denver, The Associated Press learned.

    The three teams were to announce the trade later Wednesday night, according to two basketball sources with knowledge of the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    Denver also gets a first-round draft choice from Philadelphia and a second-round pick from the Rockets.

    Posey was second on the Nuggets in scoring, averaging 14.1 points. He will give the Rockets another offensive player to complement Steve Francis, Cuttino Motley and Yao Ming.

    The 76ers upgraded their talent at the power forward spot, where Bryant and Long were receiving little playing time.

    Well I like the deal, I feel bad about saying this but I thought Kenny was holding the Rockets back. I hope this will allow Griffin to break out soon. Maybe it will be a confidence booster for him. Welcome James Posey! The new junk yard dog!
