1. Reggie Jackson

The hometown kid has been off to a solid start this season. Reggie Jackson is averaging 13.6 points and 4.5 assists per game, shooting 50.4% from the field and 42.2% from three. When Jamal Murray was out a month with a hamstring injury, Jackson stepped in to save the day.

He wasn't a fixture in Denver's rotation after the team signed him last February, but he's exploded onto the scene (subscription required) this season.

The Denver Nuggets shouldn't trade Reggie Jackson

Out of the three players on this list, Jackson has the slightest chance of being traded. Even with a healthy Murray, he's a good role player to have on the bench. And when Murray's out, Jackon's there to fill in as the starting point guard. He's been Denver's Sixth Man.

Jackson is on a two-year, $10.3 million deal with a player option in 2024-25. That contract already looks like a steal for Calvin Booth and the Nuggets. Don't expect Jackson to go anywhere.
