NBA Rumors: Celtics acquiring Kenneth Faried from Nuggets possible?

Kenneth Faried is one of the most energetic players in the league and his hustle is something that contending teams need. According to the latest NBA rumors, the Denver Nuggets trading Faried to the Boston Celtics remains a possibility.

Zach Lowe of ESPN mentioned in his podcast that the Nuggets are open to dealing their starting power forward along with one of their prized wings. He noted that the Denver front office has a lot of ideas that could trigger a lot of NBA rumors.

“And not just Denver’s trying to get off Faried, which I think they are. But if they have to move a decent wing to get off Faried and get something good in return, well, they’ve got a lot of wings now; young ones, mid-career ones, take your pick. They just have a lot of ideas in the fire,” Lowe said.

According to Taylor Hunt of NuggLove, the Celtics are a possible trade partner for the Nuggets in a future Kenneth Faried deal. Boston is looking for an upgrade in its power forward position and The Manimal fits perfectly with Al Horford.

On offense, Horford could space the floor while Faried mans the paint waiting for loose balls and offensive rebounds. On the other hand, these two players could form a good defensive partnership along with Jae Crowder and Avery Bradly on the wings.

Taylor added that the Celtics will not have to give up too much for Faried and a possible wing player like Will Barton or Gary Harris. They can throw in a couple of picks, Amir Johnson or Kelly Olynyk. The Nuggets main need right now is a stretch four and Johnson and Olynyk can knock down jump shots.
