NBA Trade Rumors: Nuggets May Trade Kenneth Faried After The Regular Season Begins?
Denver Nuggets is in for an overhaul. The new head coach, Mike Malone, is looking to change the team to give it a shot to win next season. It is said that the coach is looking to move Kenneth Faried as it has been insinuated that his skills are largely redundant in the team.
The Denver Nuggets have made a good trade with Ty Lawson. Their point guard position will obviously be better guarded by Emmanuel Mudiay. After this ground-breaking trade in July this year, fans were expecting that the team will get into heavy trade this year, but that did not happen.
Now the Nuggets management is getting into the trading mode again and it is rumored that all the veterans in the team should watch their back. The management is looking into big time trading and Kenneth Faried might be the next player they might trade.
Faried is a big one but Nuggets already have many biggies. J.J. Hickson, Jusuf Nurkic, and Darrell Arthur are all solidly built and are a lot bigger than him. Faried’s skillset is largely redundant too, most players on the team would agree with that.
Faried has been around since 2011, and the team has been disappointing in the past few seasons. However, Faried is a good rebound picker and he could be useful in teams where they need a big with those skills.
Faried will be twenty five this year, and he still has a lot of good playing years ahead of him. The Nuggets have a four-year contract with him that has pegged him at 50 million dollar.
This obviously goes to show that Kenneth Faried is a good buy for teams. The Nuggets’ training camp will begin full swing soon, but they still might try to trade him by the February deadline next year.
