Denver's shopping for another big to add to their fleet

Feb 10, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

With Nene, Kenyon Martin, Birdman Anderson, and Carmelo Anthony, along with some bench guys in a pinch, you’d think the Nuggets, sitting in the 2nd seed would be feeling pretty good about their team and in particular their frontcourt. And you would be wrong for thinking so.

The Denver Post reports that Denver is considering a trade for a big to contend with the Lakers’ unbelievable length. Two specific targets mentioned are Tyrus Thomas of the Bulls and Marcus Camby of the Clippers. George Karl said that the roster may be good enough to get the Nuggets where they want to go as long as they stay healthy. The problem with that thinking is that with a week before the trade deadline, the Nuggets are forced to try and forsee that injury before it occurs. Which is difficult unless you’re on some sort of chemical Birdman used to frequent.

Camby fits with that roster, and would probably welcome a trip back to Denver. Thomas, on the other hand, is known as a headcase. So on the one hand you’ve got old and expensive versus young and brash. All this for a team with veteran leadership, an MVP candidate, two All-Stars, and the second seed in a tough Western Conference. Beggars can’t be choosers, but apparently kings can.

    I found this very helpful. I have been learning the ropes on my own and taking advice wherever I can get it.

    I keep getting errors when I try to add the blog feed to my feed reader. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a problem with your site?
