On his radio show this morning, George Karl said that there’s about a 1% chance that the team will trade Linas Kleiza. If somebody offered Tim Duncan or Kobe Bryant, the coach said, they’d throw in Kleiza. Other than that, however, it’s very unlikely. He also said that he has a quiet confidence in the team and doesn’t favor a “band-aid” deal that makes the team better now but not in the long run.
The George Karl show can be heard on Denver’s Fan 950 every Wednesday morning (during the NBA season) around 8:00 a.m. If you’re in town and not listening, you should be — you can even call, e-mail, and text your questions to the coach, and they often give Nuggets tickets for the best question of the day.
The trade deadline will be here in 28 hours and seven minutes.
