NBA Rumors: Nuggets are looking to be active trade partners this offseason


The Denver Nuggets finished the season below .500 and below expectations. So the Nuggets front office is ready to be aggressive in the offseason when it comes to fixing their deficiencies according to general manager Tim Connelly.

From The Denver Post:

“It’s huge,” Connelly said of this offseason. “We came here with pretty high expectations and certainly didn’t meet our internal goals. This summer, we’re going to go all-in and try to take the next step.”

By “all-in,” Connelly means this: “I’ve already let all the other guys in different front offices around the league know that we’re open for business. … If you really study our team, we have a lot of flexibility.”

So who is on the trading block for the Nuggets? Javale McGee and Kenneth Faried will probably have their name thrown around a lot in rumors and debates. Faried would probably be the more intriguing of the two in debate rumors since McGee’s trade value is low. With that being said, moving McGee and his contract might be the biggest priority for the Nuggets. McGee is slated to make $11.25 million in the 2014-15 season and then $12 million the season after that.
