Juancho Hernangomez, Denver Nuggets

If I’m the Denver Nuggets, I want Juan Hernangomez on my team long-term. He’s young, super talented and feels like a nice complementary piece for the Nikola Jokic-Gary Harris-Jamal Murray core. Hernangomez is also still on his team-friendly, rookie-scale deal.

However, the 22-year-old has ceded his minutes to Trey Lyles, Torrey Craig and Malik Beasley. And if he’s not in the team’s plans now, you have to wonder about the future. Meanwhile, his cap number is low, but the Nuggets need all the help they can get to make room for Jokic’s big payday.

For Utah’s part, Hernangomez would be a nice developing piece; an athlete and a frontcourt playmaker. He’s also a 38.5 percent 3-point shooter in his young career, which could make him a nice fit next to Gobert in the future.

If he’s a player you like, it’s time to buy low while you can.
