06:29 PM ET 06.24 | Happy with the young players already in house, the Denver Nuggets have made it known their first-round pick in this week's NBA Draft is available through trade. While it's uncertain what Denver plans to acquire in exchange for the No. 27 selection, it's possible the team could pursue extra picks in the future while moving into the second round. In a draft that doesn't have too many impact players, teams looking for extra depth could come calling to nab that late first-round selection. For a club like Denver that's already loaded with solid players, whoever is available with that pick would likely end up spending the next year glued to the bench. Considering the team still needs to find more minutes for young players like Javale McGee and Evan Fournier, adding another rookie to the mix could unnecessarily complicate things.

This is the first sensible move Denver has done in a long time.

I agree. They have a deep rotation already.
