Denver Nuggets

Zeke Nnaji

The Denver Nuggets are cruising through the regular season and could be waiting for the right moment to shift into championship gear. It's likely still a bit too early but there's going to be a time at some point late in the season when the Nuggets finally make the shift. Maybe it will happen after the NBA Trade Deadline; who knows? Nevertheless, it was difficult to find a player the Nuggets should want to trade off their roster.

Denver is not in a place where their depth is considered a luxury. However, if they had to trade one player, perhaps Zeke Nnaji is the one that would fit the criteria. I understand he was just given an extension. However, he's averaging less than 10 minutes played per game this season for the Nuggets.

He simply hasn't been a player the Nuggets have leaned on much, if at all this season. For the betterment of the team and Nnaji, a trade at the deadline could be what makes sense for both sides. Perhaps the Nuggets could get a player that fits better and Nnaji could find a team that could give him a more meaningful role.
