The Denver Nuggets went into the 2017 NBA draft with the 13th pick in the first round and multiple 2nd round picks. The Nuggets have thus far been rumored to be an active team. One of my sources close to the team have told me “not much chatter from the Nuggets. Mostly fielding offers,” but as Jeff Goodman highlights for ESPN, the Nuggets have been constructing a package for Jimmy Butler.
Denver has spoken to the Bulls about Jimmy Butler, source told ESPN. Would include multiple young players, not Nikola Jokic, and picks.
According to Chris Haynes of ESPN, the Nuggets have also discussed a trade that would net them Suns’ Eric Bledsoe in exchange for the 13th pick and Emmanuel Mudiay.
