I'd love to have him on the team, but what are we supposed to be giving up?
I can't think of a single scenario that makes sense for both teams
The closest we come is a trade centered around Hill. Hill is a more traditional big, something they're looking for as opposed to Faried. We don't need traditional bigs really, so Faried would fit here more than Hill does while still providing most of the same things Hill did.
But it's not really something Denver couldn't top anywhere else.
I don't recall Faried shooting any better than Hill can... I remember him being more of a hustle/ORBD beast, when we met them in the Playoffs.
Eh he needs to shoot here, but the open style of basketball makes him effective anyway. Remember when D'Antoni didn't want to play Hill because he couldn't shoot but he earned his way into the rotation by working hard?
Faried would do the same thing, but on an increased scale.
Anyway, the Nuggets are looking for far, far, far more than Jordan Hill so it's a moot point. Last rumor I read had them offering Faried for Oladipo.
