The Denver Nuggets, with a deep roster of young talent, are a popular target for other NBA teams as the draft nears. One of the trade scenarios Denver is discussing in the lead up to Thursday’s draft would net the Nuggets a top-10 pick, reports ESPN’s Chris Broussard.

Other media members on Twitter have offered mixed reactions toward the trade possibility. Most seem to think the trade would favor the Nuggets.
Golden State has reportedly considered trading the No. 7 pick for a veteran, but some question whether Chandler is worth such a high draft choice.
The 25-year-old Chandler played in China during the NBA lockout and then, after rejoining the Nuggets, missed much of the season with a hip injury.
In the 2010-11 season, when he was traded to Denver from the New York Knicks as part of the package for Carmelo Anthony, Chandler averaged 15.3 points per game.
