Nuggets gauging interest in Emmanuel Mudiay

The Nuggets are quietly exploring what they might get for Emmanuel Mudiay and multiple picks, sources say, but they’re in no rush to move Mudiay, and the Suns may not want him when they could simply draft a point guard. There aren’t that many teams with a need at the position, and not much reason to exchange Bledsoe for another established guy — say, Reggie Jackson or Ricky Rubio — unless the other team includes a pretty damned good pick to sweeten the pot.

This rumor is part of a storyline: 6 more rumors
The Suns are resisting after watching Bledsoe’s growth over the last six weeks. “This is the best I’ve ever seen him play,” said Ryan McDonough, the team’s GM. “The learning curve for point guards is steep. We think Eric will play better in his late 20s and early 30s, right as Devin is entering his prime.” Watson is more blunt: “I can almost guarantee Devin and Eric will be on the same team next year,” he said.

Earlier this season, Cousins – among the NBA’s best post players – said he’s had conversations with Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe about one day playing together. Cousins and Bledsoe were college teammates at Kentucky. “I can’t comment on specific players,” McDonough said. “What I will say, generally, is that we have conversations with every other team in the league about every elite player in the league. Our interest level, obviously, differs on those players. … This time of year I think some of the rumors get a little bit out of control. Some of them, there is a shred of truth to them. Some of them, there’s no truth to them. And obviously, from the team side, it’s not great when your own players are mentioned in a deal either individually or in a package, but that’s part of the business.”
