The Nuggets are seen by many as a possible dark-horse contender.
There were reportedly four teams Kyrie Irving told Cavs' management he'd like to be traded to.
Those four teams: Miami, Minnesota, New York and Antonio.
Denver, as you can see, is not one of those four teams. But the Nuggets are seen by many as a very intriguing trade partner, boasting an elite young big man in Nikola Jokic and some good young wings.
According to one of Irving's former teammates, Mike Miller, the All-Star point guard would "definitely" be interested in a trade to Denver.
“I’ve already asked that question,” Miller said to Altitude Radio. “I don’t know if I can give you the answer but I’ve already asked that question. I think he will. I really do. Like anything else, when people look at cities, Denver’s an unbelievable city we all know that. And with what the organization has built there, he would be crazy not to and he’s definitely, definitely interested in it and I told him by putting this thing out there he has no choice.”
The Cavs held a press conference today and didn't say much on the Irving front outside of "we're not going to talk about that."
So stay tuned.
