Rumor: Magic & Nuggets Talking Trade

The Denver Nuggets are looking to add another scoring threat for their playoff push and have discussed a deal with the Orlando Magic for shooting-guard Terrence Ross.

The 30-year-old shooter has appeared in 35 games this season and is having a nice season with averages per game of 15.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists while shooting 41% from the field and 34.4% from deep.

The former first-round pick of the Toronto Raptors is in contention for the sixth man of the year voting as he's only started 2 out of the 35 games this season. The Nuggets would love Ross's production off their bench to compliment Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic.

The Nuggets sit sixth in the West, with a record of 21-15.  Meanwhile the Magic are 13-23 and are looking to trade multiple players off their roster before the March 25th deadline. This could include moving star Nikola Vucevic, as he's been linked to the Boston Celtics. 

As for Ross, he's signed for two more seasons, making $12.5 million and $11.5 million respectfully. Look for Will Barton to be going the other way in the deal and likely one first round pick.
