2013 NBA Trade Deadline Day

USA TODAY Images

Will we see any action from the Nuggets today? It should be an interesting few hours.

The Denver Nuggets rarely pop up in trade rumors, but there have been a few here-and-there. Will the Nuggets look to move any of their expiring contracts in Timofey Mozgov, Corey Brewer or Julyan Stone? What about Wilson Chandler? Could Andre Miller be on the move? What if another big trade comes the Nuggets way?

Latest around the league

With the Houston Rockets making a big splash last night to acquire Thomas Robinson from the Sacramento Kings, many now believe they have enough assets to make a serious run at Denver Stiffs reader TyLawesome's favorite target: Josh Smith.

But the Milwaukee Bucks are also believed to be in play for Smith and that has one blogger worried. From Frank Madden over at Brew Hoop:

Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post squashed the rumors created by ESPN's Bill Simmons fake trade piece before-and-after last night's NBA games on the four-letter network:

Utah Jazz announcer David Locke has a little video podcast up discussing if the team will move Paul Millsap or Al Jefferson and tweeted this out:

As is the case on most trade deadline days - expect a lot of smaller deals. Teams are looking to move some smaller salaries around to avoid luxury tax penalties and create extra roster room.

The latest on J.J. Redick:

What will the Nuggets do?

My guess is the Nuggets stand pat. That's the "easy way out" guesstimate, but I just don't see a lot of deals out there for Denver. If the Nuggets do trade Mozgov today - that's a big vote of confidence in Kosta Koufos, JaVale McGee, and Anthony Randolph.

I see Denver hanging onto Brewer and letting him test the free agency waters this summer. He has been vital for Denver off the bench this season and it's not in Masai Ujiri's track-record to let assets walk for nothing, but that's my hunch.

And finally: could we see another big time trade? JaVale McGee for Nene happened right at the deadline. Always expected the unexpected with Batman on the loose!
