The Denver Nuggets have expressed interest in trading for San Antonio Spurs guard Bryn Forbes. The Spurs are shopping Forbes, who is on a one-year, $4.5 million contract.
Denver has been looking to upgrade their shooting around Nikola Jokic. The Nuggets currently rank in the bottom half of the NBA in three-point shooting, which is Forbes' specialty. Denver is hoping to get Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. back before the end of the season but could use some shot-making until then.
San Antonio rarely makes in-season deals but has Forbes and veteran big man Thaddeus Young available leading up to the trade deadline. Young isn't a part of the Spurs rotation and is widely expected to be traded or bought out. Moving Forbes would open up more playing time for a host of young San Antonio guards, including Joshua Primo, Devin Vassell and Tre Jones.
