Rockets Receive Interest In P.J. Tucker From Nets, Bucks, Heat, Nuggets, Lakers

Mar 4, 2021 11:04 AM

The Houston Rockets have received trade interest from a number of contending teams on P.J. Tucker.

Tucker is on an expiring contract.

The Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, Miami Heat, Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers all have interest in Tucker.

The timing of a deal is likely dependent on Houston's asking price as they seek a young player in exchange for Tucker.

Tucker can defend multiple positions and is a respectable three-point shooter.

Wolves' 2021 FRP Owned By Warriors, Michael Porter Jr. Considered Two Most Valuable Trade Assets

Feb 25, 2021 10:17 AM

The 2021 first round pick from the Minnesota Timberwolves owned by the Golden State Warriors and Michael Porter Jr. are widely considered the two most valuable trade assets on the market.

The Warriors acquired the top-3 protected pick from Minnesota as part of the D'Angelo Russell for Andrew Wiggins trade.

Denver has so far been reluctant to trade Porter in their conversations for Jrue Holiday and James Harden. It remains to be seen whether the Nuggets would reverse course should Bradley Beal come to market.

Nuggets Remain Focused On Internal Improvement Rather Than Major Trade

Feb 12, 2021 11:50 AM

The Denver Nuggets ultimately passed on making a serious offer to the Houston Rockets for James Harden and appear to be in the same mode now of seeking internal improvement to take the next step in their pursuit of a title.

Sources tell Sam Amick of The Athletic that "the Nuggets' focus at the moment is on improving this group as it's currently constructed."

While Nikola Jokic has been an MVP candidate and Jamal Murray has been inconsistent, Denver's future could be tied to the improvements made by Michael Porter Jr. 

Jokic has played more of a leadership role for the Nuggets of late, particularly with Porter.

Nikola Jokic After 47-Point Game: 'I'm Going To Score When We Need It'

Jan 31, 2021 11:24 PM

Nikola Jokic matched a career-high 47 points in the Denver Nuggets' 128-117 win over the Utah Jazz.

The win also snapped the Jazz's 11-game win streak.

"I'm going to score when we need it. It's just a game. The main thing is just win the game. I'm going to score however much I need just to win the game," said Jokic after the game. 

The Nuggets shot 88.2% from the three-point line in the first half, the highest 3-point field goal in a half over the past 20 seasons.

Will Barton said he tried to convince Jokic to hit the 50-point mark.

"You know him; he don't care about that kind of stuff. He's just playing basketball, being aggressive, being who he is. We definitely wanted the big fella to get 5-0 tonight."
