Randy Foye was part of a three-player trade on Thursday evening that saw the 32-year-old move from the Denver Nuggets to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
In the opposite direction went forward Steve Novak, guard D.J. Augustin, and two future second-round draft picks.
And according to ESPN.com's NBA writer Royce Young, Foye was not aware he was being traded until he took out his phone and got a notification from the NBA app.

Hardly the way you'd like to find out about a trade. But Foye has left behind a franchise with an outside chance of reaching the playoffs, for a team who are considered serious contenders in the Western Conference.
Foye was active last night during the Oklahoma City Thunder's loss to the Indiana Pacers but head coach Billy Donovan opted not to play him.
He is likely to be active again when they face the Dallas Mavericks in their next game and will be hoping to get some minutes on the hardwood for his new franchise.
Foye played 54 games for the Nuggets this season and averaged six points, 2.1 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 19.8 minutes of basketball. He also holds a career average of 11 points per game.
