Bones Hyland trade talk, Jokic vs. Embiid, MPJ’s return


In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, beat writer Mike Singer and deputy sports editor Matt Schubert reconvene after the team’s return home from a three-game road trip. Among the topics discussed:

    • Reports have surfaced that the Nuggets are shopping Bones Hyland ahead of the NBA trade deadline. What are they looking to get in return? Is this simply a win-now move? How would a trade affect the rest of the rotation?
    • Joel Embiid got the best of Nikola Jokic in the final game of the Nuggets’ three-game trip. How might that game affect the MVP race? What can be learned from the performances of both players? Are there any red flags that popped up in the loss?
    • Michael Porter Jr. returned to the lineup after taking a leave from the team as he tended to his family in the wake of a fatal car crash that allegedly involved his brother. What was his state of mind upon returning?
    • We take questions from readers, including one wondering about specific players who could be acquired at the deadline and another offering a harsh critique of Nuggets head coach Michael Malone.
