Nuggets' Kenneth Faried available for trade
Denver Nuggets forward/center Kenneth Faried is being made available in a trade, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.
Isola notes Denver wants to move at least one big man and both Faried and J.J. Hickson are available, but we'd consider it much more likely that Hickson is the one that moves. The asking price for Faried will be (understandably) high, while Hickson has fallen out of the rotation entirely with Nikola Jokic, Joffrey Lauvergne and Jusuf Nurkic all playing roles in a suddenly crowded frontcourt.
Faried ranks 43rd with a 3.6 nERD while Hickson comes in at 79th with a -0.3 nERD. Faried is averaging 12.5 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game on 55.5 percent shooting from the field. Hickson is logging just 15.3 minutes per game, the least since his rookie season.
