Trade season is here! The Pickaxe Pundits show on Nothing But Net Radio dives into the first big name rumored to be available in Kemba Walker and whether or not he makes sense for the Denver Nuggets. The guys also talk about if Jamal Murray or Gary Harris have to be included in a deal to get Kemba. To start the show, Zach, Jeremy and Mark break down the awful loss to the Phoenix Suns. Next the guys breakdown the Plumkic pairing (Nikola Jokic & Mason Plumlee) and why it hasn’t been working anymore for the Nuggets. Then after the break the Kemba discussion goes full force before they wrap up the show talking about Jusuf Nurkic’s anticipated return to the Pepsi Center.

- Coach wants Nikola to play more center but thinks the defense suffers without Mason, agree or disagree?
- Do you believe Plumkic should go away entirely or should it still get spot minutes?
- How much does not having a true point guard magnify the issues with Plumkic?
Kemba on the block
- How much would he help the Nuggets?
- Would you give up Murray or Harris to get him?
