The Nuggets are looking to get “longer, more athletic, versatile, defensive-minded, and bigger” at the wing ahead of the Feb. 9 trade deadline, Amick wrote — with the “dream scenario” being to find a player similar to Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon.
Basically, it sounds as if the Nuggets would like to find a player to capably and consistently relieve Gordon, who is having a career season and logging a lot of minutes.
Granted, what the Nuggets wish for and what they can actually do might be two different things entirely, as noted by Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors. Only six players on the roster earn more than $5 million annually, likely making it difficult to find matching salary in a deal for a player on their wish list.
