Hibbert, only recently acquired from Charlotte, was highly unlikely to crack Milwaukee’s rotation with Thon Maker, John Henson, Spencer Hawes and Greg Monroe occupying frontcourt spots. He’ll provide depth for the Nuggets but will be equally hard-pressed for minutes. The pick being sent to Milwaukee is top-55 protected, so it’s unlikely that the Bucks ever receive anything from the deal.
