Denver Nuggets under-the-radar trade candidates: Josh Green
Josh Green is an interesting choice here given the fact he plays sparingly for the Dallas Mavericks and when he does, it’s hardly inspiring. Because of this, it makes him easier for the Denver Nuggets to trade for – fewer trade partners and at a cheaper price.
The idea behind trading for Green is simple, add another player with the name ‘J. Green’ to the box score.
No, in reality, it’s to bring in a player and hope he can hit the upside that Dallas hoped he would when he was drafted. Since the Mavs have been competing in both of Green’s two seasons, minutes have been hard to come by. Denver would be able to see what he can do if they trade for him and give him plenty of run this season.
You also get to factor in the Jokic boost, what would he look like cutting and spotting up around Nikola Jokic, instead of standing in the corner for Luka Doncic?
This might be the biggest buy-low player on the list but hey, that means it’s a lower price.
