#1. Denver Nuggets
This trade may be a stretch, but the Denver Nuggets are in a win-now mode. Porter Jr. is the third option behind Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic, but he’s not a superstar. If the Nuggets want to win the NBA Championship, they need another star.
Even though the Nuggets made the Western Conference Finals last year, that was unprecedented. They obviously deserved to be there, but it wasn’t something that many predicted would happen. Even though they had a great duo in Murray and Jokic, they seemed one piece away from being a real contender. That’s where Kyle Lowry fits in perfectly for them.
Murray and Lowry may both be point-guards, but Lowry has no issue jumping into the shooting guard position beside Murray. Lowry and VanVleet have been doing this with the Raptors already, so it would be an easy transition for him. Obviously, Porter Jr. leaving would be a blow to the organization, but Will Barton could fill in and be the everyday Shooting Forward, making the Nuggets starting-five deadly.
Lowry’s experience would also be huge for the young Nuggets team. For the Toronto Raptors, they would be getting a young piece who could fit right into the starting line-up and provide some offense that would be missed by Lowry.
