The Nuggets "are looking to deal" Timofey Mozgov, league sources told Fox Sports Florida. It makes sense. Mozgov said he wouldn't be surprised if he were traded, and given he's in the last year of his deal, the Nuggets will at least explore the market. Mozgov is buried behind Kosta Koufos and JaVale McGee ont he depth chart, and he hasn't played more than 15 minutes in a game since December 5.

How many of you would do this?

Mozgov and Wilson chandler

For

Brandon bass and fab melo?

I think chandler could be a nice asset (more so then bass) for a future trade this summer or next season. Mozgov could potentially help this team this season more then bass could.

Bass and a first is the package I offer first... Most likely to be turned down very quickly.

Although. The Nuggets don't really have a backup PF. Bass is athletic and can run with the Nuggets and also could be a veteran for their squad in the playoffs...

Do we want Mozgov that bad however?

No need to bring Chandler in. He is a less talented Jeff Green. If we were trading Green for another piece then maybe. But if we trade Green Im guessing it would be for a big, thus making Bass for Mozgov irrelevant.

I don't think Denver is getting a first round pick for Mozgov.

Maybe a pair of second rounders. Something like that. With an expiring deal or a trade exception that would save them a small bit of cash.

Chandler likely has more value overall around the league then Bass does. His versatility to play either wing should be valued. My point in acquiring him isn't to have him come in and be a major fixture in the rotation. It's to acquire an asset that is valued more universally then the asset you are shipping out.

Watched Mozgov a lot when he was with the Knicks.  They guy is huge, no doubt, and any size issue we have would be immediately corrected with his addition.

But I don't see any upside to him.  Unlike Stiemer, who was clearly a shot blocking specialist, Mozgov never jumped out at me as a guy who did any one thing well. 

I think Melo would be better than him, so why do the trade?

Well I guess you wouldn't and maybe being patient with Melo is the way to go here. It's going to likely take 4-5 years (Perk, Hibbert, etc.) for him to show what he can do but he might be worth it.

What if the deal was Bass, Collins, and a 2013 first
for
Mozgov and Chandler

Edit: I am not trying to overhype Bass. I see him for what he is - a 6'7" PF who owes Rondo half his paycheck for all the open Jumpshots he gives him - but Denver NEEDS another PF. They aren't playing either of the guys, at all, that they re sending out in the deal.

I think Melo has the chance to be better down the road.  But you do the trade because Mozgov can help you contend for a championship now, while Melo is at least another year or two away from being any sort of impact player, not to mention, there is no guarantee Melo ever gets even as good as Mozgov is now.

I've been saying to do this deal for the past few weeks or so:

Brandon Bass for Mozgov and A. Randolph

My initial reaction (maybe because I've already been thinking about Mozgov): Get him. He's tall, and huge, and reasonably skilled for a guy his size. And did I mention huge?

My co-worker who's a Nuggets fan says Mozgov is solid, he just happens to be on a team with a lot of center depth. I prefer to keep Melo, so if we can get Mozgov and Randolph for Bass, great. Bass might make a nice backup to Faried and/or Gallinari, and Boston gets a couple of 7-footers to beef up its frontcourt. Start Mozgov, move KG to the 4, bring Sully in to spell KG, Wilcox for Mozgov, then you still have Randolph for extra relief, and Collins as a situational guy.

Great question.

They might be able to get more honestly. However Chandler coming off surgery and not being in the rotation means teams will be trying to buy low. Bass at this moment might be the best PF they can get for him.

Bass isn't garbage and his skill set and role could fit nicely with what Denver has. His ability to space the floor and his acceptance of his role might be more valued by Denver then say Dallas. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder right? I am just saying that overall when healthy I bet more teams see Chandler as more valuable then Bass.

However in Denver's situation with guys like Brewer, Igoudala, and Gallinari. Plus Lawson and Miller playing both guard slots a lot of the time this might not be the case. It would seem their need for a guy like Bass would be greater then their need for Chandler at the moment.

I've suggested the same, though it's certainly a risky deal for the Cs. Not a ton of upside, but plently of potential downside....
