It took some doin' for the Nuggets to become a central part of today's local Sports conversation, but, thanks to a trade rumor championed by Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, they are.
Denver is reported to be part of a four-team trade discussion aimed primarily at bringing Dwight "the other Carmelo" Howard to the LA Lakers. Naturally, every NBA trade rumor somehow involves Howard to the L.A., but this one includes the Nuggets.
The Blue and Yellow would part ways with Al Harrington (and his awful contract) and Aaron Afflalo (a fan favorite) and bring back Andre Iguodala (a stout defender). The entire mix can be seen over at Denver Stiffs. I won't spell out the deets.
The bottom line is that the Nuggets would get a tad better and gain some flexibility while the Lakers would become even more unbeatable in the West, with the ultimate goal of facing down the Heat in the East.
Ultimately, for the Nuggets, being involved beats not - but the deal would hardly influence thier playoff fate. They're a first or second round out regardless.
