According to Zach Lowe of Grantland, the Nuggets have reportedly put out feelers around the league to gauge the interest and value in a trade for Kenneth Faried.

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.

One of my favorite players in the NBA right now.  Quality player, quality human being.

 

Would love to see him in L.A. some day.

Pau Gasol is going to be one happy man if that happens.

Question: Would you guys deal Hill for Faried if that was presented?

Hill is a poor man's Faried.

 

Hell yes I'm up for an upgrade.

No idea why that would ever be an actual deal, but, come on - of course.

 

Unfortunately David Kahn or Michael Jordan isn't the Nuggets' GM.

Majesty is downright wrong on that one.

 

Faried's lack of finesse and skill is more than made up for with his energy, strength and desire.  The guy is a spark plug and the kind of player that would round out a championship squad perfectly.  He would fit onto any team in the NBA.

If Faried where to ever develop a solid mid-range jumper or 10-15 footer, he'd easily be in All-Star talks.

He will be an all-star eventually even without that.

Why would they let a guy like this get away?  Seems like there must be more to the story.  Perhaps he has already indicated that he wont sign with them long term?

They want a super star and faried being very good really wont get much better than he is now. He's an athletic freak with a great motor but that only gets you so far. Though I cant see what team would give up a possible super star for him.

Considering there aren't many superstars in the league and the ones that are around are all bound up by contract for quite a while outside of LeBron, and that ain't happening.

 

Dealing Faried would be a mistake in the range of OKC dealing Harden proportions, impact-wise.

My thoughts exactly. They were just fishing probably.

He's a better offensive rebounder than Faried. Faried is a better defensive rebounder.

 

Before Jordan Hill’s injury, he was logging some historic numbers on the offensive end of the floor — some numbers you’d have to delve into outside of typical box scores. In 29 games last season, Jordan Hill’s offensive rebound percentage was at an outstanding 20.3. To put that particular number into perspective, had he recorded the minimum minutes to qualify for the league’s best and sustained his ORB%, he would have had recorded the best offensive rebounding season since Jayson Williams in 1998 — with Dennis Rodman’s 20.83 ORB% the year before being the only other instance that a ball player had an offensive rebound percentage over 20.

Hill would have had the third highest single-season ORB% of all time. As wild as that sounds, this season wasn’t an outlying performance. Hill has a career ORB% of 14.2, which would be sixth all time had he already logged the necessary minutes requirements through his first four years in the NBA. In seven regular season games with the Lakers last season, Hill recorded an ORB% of 20. And in the 12 playoff games that he saw minutes in last season, his ORB% was a smidgen under 19.

In other news, I have no idea why the Nuggers would think about trading him, nor do I know why Shaw is trying to turn him into a post player or making him shoot jumpers and not pick and rolling with him.


Don't think the Nuggets would offer Faried to us, but if you have the chance you take it. 

But the Nuggets dealing away Faried would be a mistake of epic proportions.


I'm just waiting to hear Miami Heat fans say that they need to dangle Anderson and Oden in front of Denver to try to get Faried.


Honestly if you're Miami, offering them Anderson, Oden, and Battier for Faried.  Do the Nuggets take that?
Probably not..

It would be a robbery the likes of which the league hasn't seen since..oh James Harden for Kevin Martin :laughing:
