On Wednesday, a report surfaced that the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks were discussing a trade that would involve Iman Shumpert and Kenneth Faried. However, it appears the reports may have been a little premature.
This was from earlier today:
And within the last hour, Adrian Wojnarowski did his thing and dropped a Woj bomb on this whole situation.
It’s clear that the Knicks would be more than willing to make the swap, especially with the lack of frontcourt depth (with Tyson Chandler injured and the fact that Amar’e Stoudemire and Kenyon Martin are on a minutes count) but the Nuggets, not so fast.
Still, I won’t rule out the fact that the Nuggets could be smoke-screening the media. Maybe they want to eventually trade Faried, but don’t want to tip their hand.
