 DENVER (AP) -The Denver Nuggets sent forward Reggie Evans and the draft rights to forward Ricky Sanchez to the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday in exchange for swingman Steven Hunter and forward Bobby Jones.
The Sixers weren't finished, agreeing to terms with free agent Calvin Booth. The 6-foot-11 center played in 44 games with Washington last season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.8 rebounds.
The trade is the second between the teams since December, when Allen Iverson joined the Nuggets in a blockbuster deal.
``Steven is an athletic, 7-foot big man ... that can block shots,'' said Mark Warkentien, Denver's vice president of basketball operations. ``We think his presence will provide us with a more balanced roster. Bobby is an intriguing young player, who really played well at the end of the season.
``This move greatly helps us add depth at our center position while reducing our inventory of power forwards. Reggie played a valuable role for us during his time in Denver and we appreciate his professionalism.''
Evans averaged 5.0 points and 7.5 rebounds in 92 games for the Nuggets after his acquisition from Seattle on Feb. 23. He led the league in rebounds per 48 minutes last season at 19.7.
``He is an accomplished rebounder that we feel will make an immediate impact and will exemplify our commitment to hard work, rebounding and defense,'' 76ers general manager Billy King said. ``At 6-11, Ricky Sanchez is a young prospect that has potential and we will continue to monitor his development as he plays overseas.''
Hunter set career highs with averages of 6.4 points and 4.8 rebounds in 70 games for the 76ers last season. He has appeared in 360 regular season games in six seasons with Orlando, Phoenix and Philadelphia.
The Sixers had a deal to send Hunter to the New Orleans Hornets in 2006, but the trade was rescinded because of unspecified concerns over his physical condition.
Jones played in 44 games for the 76ers last season, averaging 2.5 points and 1.3 rebounds.
Sanchez's rights were acquired by the Nuggets along with the draft rights to Linas Kleiza in exchange for the draft rights to Jarrett Jack in a draft-day deal in 2005.
Booth has career average of 3.5 points and 2.9 rebounds in eight seasons.
