“After Phoenix lost by 50 to the Spurs, we were making jokes,” Barton said. “I said, ‘After that game, they should throw the whole team to the G League.’ It was nothing personal to Phoenix. I would have said that about us if that happened to us. I was just being funny on a podcast. “I didn’t know during the game that’s what it was about. I didn’t find out until I came (into the locker room) … I was like ‘They listened to that?’ Alright. OK. Whatever. I’m coming to the game and I didn’t remember I even said that. I’m not thinking about that. So when we came back in (the locker room), they told me that’s what it’s about, and then it’s like, ‘It all makes sense.’ It’s like, ‘Oh, that’s why he came out like that,’ which I respect. You’re supposed to take that personal and I respect that. I would have took it personal, too.”
But Denver will likely make a move of its own before the Feb. 8 trade deadline, as the Nuggets are known to be shopping for a veteran point guard who could allow Will Barton to return to his super sixth man role. According to two people with knowledge of the situation, they have serious interest in the Indiana Pacers’ Darren Collison (12.8 points, 5.3 assists per game as a starter) but have, thus far, been rebuffed. Collison, whose Pacers (28-23) are fighting to hold onto a playoff spot, has a team option worth $10 million on his deal for next season. The people spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because trade talks aren’t typically discussed publicly.
