Rumor: Nuggets have interest in Marcus Smart

According to Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine), the Denver Nuggets have expressed interest in Celtics’ point guard Marcus Smart. Boston has recently been shopping Smart around the league, and GM Danny Ainge is reportedly looking for a first-round draft pick.

However, it is rumored that the Nuggets could be willing to part with younger guard, and former first-rounder Emmanuel Mudiay plus a second-round pick.

Smart is currently out of the lineup recovering from a laceration in his hand after he said he punched a picture frame at a hotel recently. He is expected to be fully recovered after the All-Star break.

It’s an interesting proposition to think of for the Nuggets who continue to battle for a playoff spot in the Western Conference race — adding a veteran point guard like Smart could go a long way and providing needed leadership as the stretch run heats up.

The question here is — who will budge on the possible offer? Will the Celtics settle for Mudiay and a 2nd? Or will the Nuggets change their approach and be willing to give up a 1st?
