Nuggets trade rumors and news: Denver likely to stand pat at trade deadline

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA trade deadline is on Thursday, but one team that doesn't seem likely to make a move is the Denver Nuggets. If the Nuggets do make a trade, look for them to trade away a role player such as Wilson Chandler, Corey Brewer or Anthony Randolph.

Everything appears to be quiet in the lead-up to Thursday's NBA trading deadline for the Denver Nuggets, who don't appear to be actively pursuing any trades. Yahoo.com NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted on Friday that the Nuggets were "unlikely to make a deal," and in recent days little has changed.

SBNation's Drew Garrison pointed out why on Wednesday, explaining that the Nuggets are locked into long-term contracts for most of their starters.

Andre Iguodala is nearly un-tradeable thanks to a $15.9 million player option for the 2013-2014 season, and with Kenneth Faried still on a rookie contract, it seems certain that the Nuggets will hold onto him through Thursday as well. Faried leads the team in rebounding, averaging 9.7 per game.

If Denver were to make a trade before the deadline, it would likely be one of their role players, according to Fox Sports' Sam Amico.

Amico mentioned Wilson Chandler, Corey Brewer and Anthony Randolph as players who could possibly be moved.
