The Denver Nuggets and Boston Celtics swapped backup point guards Tuesday in a deal that could eventually affect some contenders.

Nate Robinsonwill be going to Boston, though it is expected to be a temporary stay as he is expected to seek a buyout of his contract with the intention of signing with a playoff team.

Jameer Nelson, who was sent to Boston as part of the Rajon Rondo deal, will be going to Denver.

Robinson, who is coming back from an ACL tear, is averaging a career-low 5.8 points on a career-low 35 percent shooting in 33 games for the Nuggets.

He was sensational in the playoffs for the Chicago Bulls in 2012-13 playing in place of an injured Derrick Rose, averaging 16.3 points in 12 playoff games.

Teams who may be interested in Robinson if he is able to secure a buyout include the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Nelson played in just six games for the Celtics and is averaging a career low 6.8 points on a career-low 34 percent shooting in 29 games with the Dallas Mavericks and Celtics.

He has a player option in his contract for next season for $2.8 million.

This is the second trade the Nuggets have executed in the last week as they begin to retool their roster. The Nuggets are involved in trade talks for other players including Arron Afflalo and Randy Foye, according to sources.

VH1 Cancels Sorority Sisters

Sorority Sisters, from VH1 and Mona Scott (the mastermind behind the Love & Hip Hop franchise), roused the ire of thousands when the announcement was made that it was in development. So much so, a petition was created to have the show stopped. Even with more than 46,000 signatures, however, the petition apparently fell on deaf ears.

How badly does VH1 want to put this show into the grave? The final episode will start at the odd time of 11:10 p.m. and end just past midnight. Plus, it’s not even being repeated later that night for West Coast consumption.  And Friday tends to be a relatively low TV consumption night.

Some of the show’s stars were suspended or expelled from their respective sororities as well. On top of it all, advertisers had complained as well as a social media movement of African Americans and Greek letter organizations that demanded the show be cancelled.
