Can The Denver Nuggets Afford to Trade Monte Morris?

Noting the value he’s brought to the Denver Nuggets, you might have looked at this headline and asked, “What? Monte? Why?”

Intentionally trading Monte Morris seems pointless. After all, who else will throw Mason Plumlee those lobs? Isn’t he leading the NBA in Assist/Turnover ratio?

After looking at it, dealing him might be more viable than most Denver Nuggets fans might think.

His Value:

It’s unquestionable that Monte has been such a steady bench presence. He has been one of the best backup point guards in the league. The ability for Monte to east minutes has been invaluable in the stretches of time over this and last season in which Jamal Murray has been hurt.
