Add the Denver Nuggets to the list of teams allegedly interested in the services of Kevin Garnett. But according to Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post – Garnett has no love for Denver: Kevin Garnett is everything the Nuggets need. Heck, his scowl alone is more intimidating in the post than all 21 feet of center on Denver’s roster. So what’s the problem with pushing the idea of a blockbuster trade between Denver and Boston? Wielding the hammer of a no-trade clause, K.G. wants nothing to do with the Nuggets. Through his representatives, Garnett has let it be known he has no current interest in the Nuggets.

8 a.m. ET: The Raptors got a whole lot more interesting last week when the perennial Atlantic Division also-rans picked up Rudy Gay in a three-team trade with the Grizzlies and Pistons.
