Bill Simmons proposes an ... interesting ... trade for Nuggets

Ty Lawson is the subject of an interesting trade proposal - Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Bill Simmons does a "self" mailbag in which he proposes the Nuggets trade their pick and a surprising player

Ah, Bill Simmons. A man who's obvious Boston homerism is reflected in his new column/self-mailbag where he proposes Kevin Love land in Boston ... because you know ... that's what he does.

However, of Nuggets note, he talks about the deluge of teams looking to either trade up, down or out of the draft completely and speculates what I would call a unique idea for the Nuggets. As follows (emphasis mine):

If you’re the Lakers, would you flip no. 7 and Nash’s expiring for Lopez, then roll the dice that you just landed a top-five center for two years? If you’re the Nuggets, wouldn’t you have to consider Isaiah Thomas, Ben McLemore, Derrick Williams’s waivable contract and no. 8 for Lawson? If you’re Charlotte, wouldn’t you shop that no. 9 straight-up for Al Jefferson’s old buddy Millsap, or maybe Monroe or Afflalo? I think two of those teams are making a move.

This is the first time I've seen someone, publicly, speculate about the Nuggets moving Ty Lawson. It's an ... interesting proposal that may get people talking just a bit. I don't think it makes much sense for the Nuggets OR the Sacramento Kings ... but it's interesting nonetheless and it shows there is definite interest in the Nuggets point guard.
