One of the deepest teams in the NBA, the Denver Nuggets are quite capable of making some swaps before the Feb. 21 trade deadline. But being capable and being willing are two different things, and Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports that general manager Masai Ujiri doesn't plan to make any moves.
Even though the Nuggets have a rotation so deep that plenty talented players could be seeing reduced minutes, Denver is indeed in a good place. At 33-21 on the season and in fifth place in the Western Conference, George Karl's team doesn't have much reason to do anything drastic.
Perhaps the team could do something with expiring contracts like those of wing Corey Brewer or Timofey Mozgov, but Karl told the Denver Post leading into the All-Star break that the team is satisfied with its position, roster and contract situation.
Then again, the Nuggets' front office is known to be quite secretive, and it doesn't help the credibility of Karl's word when he recently admitted to the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he once created a trade rumor out of thin air.
