Nuggets Shopping Kenneth Faried In Trade Market

Oct 6, 2016 2:39 PM

Kenneth Faried is currently available in trade talks by the Denver Nuggets.

Faried doesn't fit with the Nuggets' current direction as they have Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic at center and want to play with pace and space at the power forward position.

The Nuggets would likely prefer to bring Faried off the bench but it is unlikely to be a move he would accept.

Denver has been shopping Faried off and on for several seasons.
