Denver Nuggets Reportedly Gauging Trade Value for Kenneth Faried

by October 23, 2013

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.”
