Will Barton had a great last season, averaging 14.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists, but because they have Gary Harris and Jamal Murray, maybe they will consider to trade him before the trade deadline.
This season, Barton is one of the best players in the Nuggets and he has only $3.5 million per year, so it's not too smart for Denver to trade him now.
According to Chris Haynes, Washington and New Orleans reached out to Denver to check the availability of Will Barton.
Denver Nuggets (12-17) are just one win away from the NBA Playoffs and maybe is not a good moment to trade Barton or any other player. They are one of the biggest surprises in the Western Conference, but it will be very tough to keep the race with Portland Trail Blazers (13-17) or Oklahoma City Thunder (16-12).
They have six players scoring more than 10 points: Willson Chander (16.8), Danilo Gallinari (16.4), Will Barton (14.3), Emmanuel Mudiay (12.8), Gary Harris (12.8) and Nikola Jokic (11.5) points per game.
Recently, we heard many trade rumors about Kenneth Faried, but maybe they will make available Barton, Chandler and Gallinari, too.
According to sources, Denver Nuggets want to build a roster around Nikola Jokic and maybe they will be very active in February. Of course, if they keep this record and keep the race to play in the NBA Playoffs, maybe they will not rebuild roster this season.
