The Denver Nuggets may not be able to swing many upgrades in NBA free agency, but the Nuggets could be a player on the trade market. One player often in rumors is Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons, and Denver could probably present an intriguing offer for Simmons if they’d part with the necessary pieces.
