Brian Windhorst of ESPN is reporting that if the Nuggets make a bold move to upgrade their roster via a trade, it almost certainly won't be including Michael Porter Jr. in a deal, as he remains untouchable.
“In talking to teams around the league, the Nuggets have made it clear that Michael Porter Jr. is not available," said Brian Windhorst. "Do not ask." Porter averaged 9.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 16.4 minutes over 55 games as a rookie last year after sitting out the entire 18-19 season due to a back injury. He emerged in the bubble and had a nice showing early in the playoffs, unlocking more scoring options for Denver. The franchise is obviously very high on him and hopefully he will be a breakout fantasy candidate next year.
