It would be interesting to see who the Nuggets would decide to give up in return, seeing as Lopez is injury prone, getting older and has a hefty contract. Are we witnessing the working of a deal to send Javale McGee on his merry way out of Denver, assuming the Nets would have interest in acquiring the oft-injured center? As you can see via ESPN’s Trade Machine, a Javale-for-Brook trade works without needing to involve any additional players.

This would also be a very interesting acquisition for the Nuggets because it would send them further away from their fast-pace, fast-breaking mentality and more towards a balanced half-court offense that Brian Shaw has been trying to install into Nuggets culture since his arrival.
