Report: Denver Nuggets Take Ty Lawson off Trade Market

by February 18, 2015

Several teams around the NBA have inquired about Ty Lawson this season, and though Denver listened to offers, the Nuggets are reportedly not ready to move their dynamic point guard.

Lawson, playing the best ball of his six-year career, doesn’t appear to be going anywhere.

No word yet on the status of Kenneth Faried.

Per the Denver Post:

There are players available for trades on the Nuggets’ roster, but, for now, Ty Lawson isn’t one of them.


Several teams have called the Nuggets about his availability, but Denver has turned them away, intent on keeping its veteran point guard, according to an NBA source.


The Nuggets are also not actively shopping Lawson. […] Lawson has been the Nuggets’ best — and steadiest — player over the past three seasons. This season he’s averaging a double-double of 16.9 points and 10.1 assists per game, the latter of which is tied for the NBA lead, with Washington’s John Wall.
