The Denver Nuggets have been fielding offers on point guard Ty Lawson, the issue there is the Nuggets are asking for a ton in return for Lawson and may not get close enough to trigger a deal.

Lawson has struggled with his situation under the current leadership in Denver, with one league source suggesting that Lawson has asked to be traded on more than one occasion.

Lawson was a no-show at Nuggets practice yesterday after spending the All-Star break in Las Vegas. Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw told Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post, that no one on the team had heard from Lawson and that his absence was unexcused.

Lawson took to social media to explain that his travel plans got “derailed” trying to get back in time for practice. However, two hours later he posted pictures of himself on a private plane.

The Indiana Pacers and the Boston Celtics are said to be the two teams most actively engaged with the Nuggets about a Lawson deal, with Pacers guard George Hill said to be one of the chips the Nuggets covet as part of a deal.

Lawson isn’t the only Denver player said to be available today; it’s expected that both guards Arron Afflalo and Wilson Chandler will be moved, with Chandler drawing attention from both the Portland Trail Blazers and the LA Clippers. Afflalo is also on the Blazers’ wish list, but is also a candidate for the Chicago Bulls and the Charlotte Hornets.

The Nuggets also have big man JaVale McGee on the market as well as veteran point guard Jameer Nelson.

Today looks to be a busy day for the Nuggets; they seem to have a lot of things in the proverbial fire today.
