NBA Trade Rumors: Denver, Utah, Golden State In Trade Talks

NBA Trade Rumors – The Denver Nuggets lost Andre Iguodala to the Golden State Warriors, but it seems that Denver will be able to swing a sign-and-trade with the Warriors. This would land the Nuggets a trade exception and allow them look for a replacement. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo, the Nuggets will target Randy Foye as part of a three-team trade that could be completed Monday.

The Golden State Warriors are in advanced discussions on a three-way, sign-and-trade scenario centered on delivering a trade exception and Utah Jazz free agent Randy Foye to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

In the deal, which could be finalized on Monday, Denver would sign-and-trade forward Andre Iguodala to Golden State for the four-year, $48 million contract he had agreed to sign with the Warriors. This would create a $12 million trade exception that the Nuggets would have a full year to use before it expires.

Utah would sign-and-trade Foye to Denver on a three-year, $9 million deal, with a team option on the third season, sources said.

The Nuggets have already signed J.J. Hickson, but still need backcourt depth to make up for the loss of Andre Iguodala and Corey Brewer potentially leaving as well. Foye wouldn’t be a terrible fit with the Nuggets – Denver needs a veteran guard who can stretch the floor, so Foye fits the bill. At the same time, signing Foye would still allow Evan Fournier to play some big minutes and develop.
