The Denver Nuggets may have to use the 14th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft to offload Kenneth Faried‘s contract, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Faried, 28, is owed $13.8 million next season on the final year of his contract.

During ESPN’s mock draft special on Tuesday, Woj said Denver has tried to get off Faried’s contract for over a year (via Denver Stiff’s Ryan Blackburn).

“The Nuggets have been trying to get off of Kenneth Faried’s contract for a year plus.

“They’re a candidate to use that 14th pick to get off of that salary.”
