An NBA trade rumor has sprouted up surrounding the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets are hoping to add Utah Jazz guard Randy Foye to their 2013-14 roster, especially now that Andre Iguodala has moved to the Golden State Warriors.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Nuggets are rumored to have sent Andre Iguodala, who has already agreed on a contract, to the Golden State Warriors, in a sign-and-trade deal that would give the Nuggets a $12 million trade exception. After that happens, the Jazz would send guard Randy Foye to the Nuggets on a three-year contract, worth $9 million. The move would give the Jazz a future second-round pick.
The Golden State Warriors are in advanced discussions on a three-way, sign-and-trade scenario centered on delivering a trade exception and Utah Jazz free agent Randy Foye to the Denver Nuggets.
Foye, 29, averaged 10.8 points and two assists while playing 27.4 minutes in 82 games with the Jazz last season, via ESPN. He has played on the Minnesota Timberwolves, Los Angles Clippers and Washington Wizards in his seven-year NBA career.
The addition of Foye would help build depth to the Nuggets' current backcourt, as he would be joining Ty Lawson and Andre Miller at the point guard position. The Nuggets also have the rights to unsigned rookie Erick Green, whom they drafted after snagging the No. 46 draft pick from the Memphis Grizzlies. Green will likely play at the point due to his small frame, even though he played off-guard in college.
After Iguodala signed with the Warriors, the Nuggets needed to consider making some deals to acquire another guard.
