NBA Trade Rumors: Nuggets Wanted Celtics’ No. 3 Pick, But Price Too High


Add the Denver Nuggets to the list of teams that reportedly have attempted to acquire the No. 3 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft from the Boston Celtics.

The Nuggets, just like the Celtics, have three first-round picks Thursday. They own picks Nos. 7, 15 and 19, all of which were acquired in trades.

Denver is in a rebuild and made a good selection in last year’s draft with point guard Emmanuel Mudiay at No. 7.

The Celtics have been involved in many rumors involving the No. 3 pick, including the Philadelphia 76ers, but so far, Boston’s asking price seems to be too high for opposing teams’ liking.
