Nuggets Among Teams With Trade Interest In Spurs’ Bryn Forbes

The Nuggets are among the multiple teams interested in trading for Spurs shooting guard Bryn Forbes, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.Bryn Forbes

Forbes, 28, is 6-foot-2 and averaging 9.1 points through the first 40 games. The Nuggets are looking to add some shooting around reigning MVP Nikola Jokic, and Forbes undoubtedly fits such a description.

And the Spurs have reason to move on from Forbes if they can find the right deal.

“With San Antonio currently outside the play-in Tournament, moving Forbes would open up more backcourt minutes for first-round pick Joshua Primo,” Scotto wrote.

Forbes is in the final season and is earning $4.5 million this season — so it’s clearly a movable deal.

“Denver is hoping to get Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. back before the end of the season but could use some shot-making until then,” RealGM noted.

“San Antonio rarely makes in-season deals but has Forbes and veteran big man Thaddeus Young available leading up to the trade deadline.”
