One of the more intriguing goals for Denver is Julius Randle of the New York Knicks. In a recent article, NBA Analysis Network’s Brett Siegel had an idea of how the Nuggets would be able to bring Randle to Mile High City this season. In the proposed scenario, the Nuggets would send a package that includes Gary Harris and a 2022 first-round pick to the Knicks in exchange for Randle and Reggie Bullock.
“As previously mentioned, Denver’s biggest flaw as a team this season is that they don’t have reliable frontcourt rebounds, which is why Julius Randle is an easy target for the Nuggets. Not to mention, he’s only 26 and can fill the void that Jerami Grant left perfectly for many years to come. With Grant gone and Millsap in the later years of his career, the Nuggets must quickly find another player to pair with Jokic for the foreseeable future which is why the Nuggets mistaking for Randle make a lot of sense moving forward”.
Randle has yet to be named All-Star, but he would be an incredible addition to the Nuggets. His arrival in Denver would significantly improve their performance on both ends of the court, giving them a very reliable third-scoring option, a rebounder monster, a facilitator and a floor spacer. This season, the 26-year-old striker has averaged 22.1 points, 11.4 rebounds and 7.4 assists while shooting 50.9% from the field and 40.7% from beyond the arc, according to ESPN.
