With the NBA trade deadline approaching, the Denver Nuggets have one last opportunity to improve their roster for the playoffs.

And while their franchise continues to rest their faith in Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray, calling in some reinforcements might really help give them an extra push in the Western Conference.

According to a new report by Chris Sheridan of Basketball News, the franchise has already had some trade conversations about Orlando's Aaron Gordon.

Gordon is not an All-Star, and there's really only so much the Nuggets could expect him to do.

But he's a solid, relatively young big man who has shown flashes of his potential -- this season, he's averaging 13.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, and a career-high 4.0 assists per game on 36.5-percent shooting from beyond the arc.

On defense, one could argue he has been even better.

Regardless, he's an intriguing name that could be had for the right price. If Denver is willing to give up the necessary pieces (which likely includes Bol Bol), it could get them a step closer towards meeting their goals this season and beyond.
