NUGGETS TRADE: Andre Miller

SUNS TRADE: Channing Frye and Sebastian Telfair

The Denver Nuggets are one of the deepest teams in the NBA, as well as one of the most fun teams to watch, by far.

They don't have one legitimate superstar on their roster and yet can routinely give the league's best teams headaches.

The one thing the Denver Nuggets are missing, even with all of their depth, is a legitimate starting power forward.

Nene is better suited to start at center, especially in Denver's uptempo system, Al Harrington is better suited as a sixth man (and even to the small forward position) and rookie Kenneth "The Beast" Faried is, well, a rookie.

Channing Frye seems like a great fit for George Karl's run-and-gun Nuggets.

It has been reported that Andre Miller will not re-sign with the Nuggets next season and therefore, rather than lose him for nothing, Denver should look to trade him now.

If the Nuggets could acquire a starting-quality power forward that fits their system perfectly, along with a decent backup point guard in Sebastian Telfair to replace Andre Miller, they should seriously consider it.

As for the Suns, it has been reported that any team that wants to trade for Steve Nash will be required to also take back the salary of either Channing Frye, Josh Childress or Hakim Warrick.

Trading Frye to the Nuggets for the expiring contract of Andre Miller makes perfect financial sense for the Suns and they would be wise to consider doing so.
