He isn’t officially on the trade block — never has been, really — but a “too good to be true” offer might entice the Nuggets to pull the trigger on a deal.
Vucevic, along with power forward Andrew Nicholson, has been with the club since the start of the rebuild. He doesn’t feel its sudden swoon this season warrants the Magic playing let’s-make-a-deal. “That’s no reason to think we need to change anything. We have to find a way within each other to get back to what we were doing early in the year,” Vucevic said. “We just got to find a way to get out of this [slump]. “Trades or whatever … I don’t think about that — that’s not my job — and I never will.”
Veteran power forward/center Jason Smith said the trade deadline looms in the minds of players — whether they admit it or not. “It’s always in the back of your mind,” Smith said. “The only thing I have to worry about is what I can control. Things I can control is how hard I work in practice, take care of my body, get my rest, eat right. Trade-deadline stuff is out of my control.”
