NBA Trade Rumors: Denver Nuggets Will Not Trade Timofey Mozgov


The Denver Nuggets were fielding offers for center Timofey Mozgov leading up to the trade deadline, but none of the offers were enough to get the Nuggets to pull the trigger on a trade.

Not only will Mozgov not be traded, but the Nuggets will not be buying out his contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

That sets him up for a long season riding the pine.

It’s been a slow afternoon and the trade deadline is only a couple of hours away. It doesn’t appear that there will be any major trades that fans are hoping for other than the potential Josh Smith deal.

NBA teams appear to be scared off by the new collective bargaining agreement and luxury taxes. Because of that, the major trades are unlikely to happen.

But hey, there is still time. There is no telling what could unfold in the final hours.

Be sure to stay tuned to FanSided.com throughout the weekend to stay up to date with the latest breaking news and trade rumors leading up to the deadline.
