NBA Draft Trade Rumors: Denver Nuggets, Portland Trail Blazers Have Discussed Swapping Picks

While Denver Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri has let it be known that he is comfortable with keeping the No. 22 pick, he is still working the phones to see what could emerge. And earlier in the day, reports NBA.com's David Aldridge, the Nuggets discussed swapping point guard Raymond Felton and the No. 22 pick with the Portland Trail Blazers for Andre Miller and the No. 21 pick. Aldridge says that the Blazers won't go through with it since the Nuggets are asking to include other parts in the deal.

Miller played with the Nuggets from 2003 up until he was traded in 2006 to the Philadelphia 76ers for Allen Iverson. Miller played almost two seasons for head coach George Karl.

Kenneth Faried has become a favorite mock draft selection to the Blazers at this point, so are the Nuggets looking to move up and acquire him?
