Denver Nuggets Reportedly Gauging Trade Value for Kenneth Faried

According to Grantland, the Nuggets have put Kenneth Faried on the trade market (even though a deal is very unlikely at this point): “Call this a semi-educated guess. Multiple sources around the league have reported in the last month that Denver has put out targeted feelers on Faried, gauging his value and demanding very good return. The Nuggets, for their part, deny they’ve put Faried’s name out there at all. Faried is entering the third season of his four-year rookie deal, and given his per-game numbers, he figures to get paid on his next contract. If the Nuggets believe Faried has hit his ceiling, and that his game lacks the all-around polish Brian Shaw has said he wants from his big men, it would make sense for Denver to see what it can get. Let’s be clear: Faried has a lot of value, and no trade is ever ‘likely’; there are just too many roadblocks to go that far.”

    Can’t teach brute force ! K.Faried hits the glass hard !

  • thesage

    So they are looking to trade the guy who transformed the culture in Denver? Good move.

  • KingBenjamin

    Looks like Bill Simmons is right, Faried will be gone before the trade deadline.

  • BCoops

    I can imagine this as an ad in the paper…
    “Looking to exchange energetic beast who needs a good home and some training for a Tank. Can also include an oversized man-child to sweeten the deal!”

    Its because he will want more money then what he’s worth, not because he isn’t a good player, this is common sense. They are simply trying to find the right deal in order to move him while his trade value is at its highest.

    The JJ Hickson move makes sense now

  • spit hot fiyah

    that will never make sense

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    Bro what do you expect when he advocates something that conservatives in Colorado/Denver don’t agree with

    He’s wrong and they are wrong

    If your talking about his energy. There was a pf on raptors when vc was playing and rocked headband that was similar to Kenneth faired hustle attitude but he wasn’t so determined to support social challenging issues

  • AddingVelocityDontTellMe

    Most gms won’t gamble on a undersides pf whose only as good as his athleticism

  • RunNGun

    To the KNICKS! Make it happen, Walsh!

  • Anthony

    If the manimal goes to a contender that is missing a piece or a real high motor guy on their 2nd unity….this will be scary. (i.e. Chicago, NY, OKC, or maybe even……umm…Detroit)

    To the Celtics please. Cheers.

  • JML-G

    would be dumb for Denver to trade him imho

  • TR

    Why not? I dont think Faried is much better

  • TR

    if at all.

  • Caboose
