Lowe Post: Denver Nuggets still active in trade talks

New, comments

Some of the big time writers over at ESPN still believe the Nuggets are actively pursuing trades

Yesterday on the Lowe Post, a podcast hosted by ESPN's Zach Lowe, he was joined by Marc Stein and both writers remarked that outside of the Boston Celtics, the Denver Nuggets are the most active team they are hearing about in trade discussions. Lowe in particular provided details about what he is hearing, stating:

(I'm hearing) ‘Denver is trying to get off [Kenneth] Faried’, which I think they are, but if they have to move a decent wing to get off Faried and get something good in return (sic). They’ve got a lot of wings now; young ones, mid-career ones, take your pick.

I think most everyone is in agreement that Keneth Faried is the most likely trade asset to be moved in the near future but the wings are also a hot commodity. With the return of Wilson Chandler, the addition of Jamal Murray and Malik Beasley and Danilo Gallinari, Gary Harris and Will Barton needing minutes the two and three spots are pretty crowded and given that ALL of those guys hold value, it's no surprise if the Nuggets are willing to add one or more of them to make a deal that brings back a difference maker to the team.
