NBA Trade Rumor: Heat interested in Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov (UPDATE)

Do the Heat have enough to sway the Denver Nuggets to part ways with their center?

Doug Pensinger

With just a few hours left to the NBA trade deadline, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is burning up Twitter today with plenty of NBA trade rumors about the entire league. For the second time today, he's mentioned the Miami Heat as a team that's willing to do business, despite contrary reports that the Heat aren't in the trade market.

He has a point too, there is little to offer of true value for other teams at this point. Which is why the Heat weren't thought of as being an active team leading up to the trade deadline.

Short of offering a young player with potential like Norris Cole, which would leave the team exposed at the point guard spot behind the inconsistent Mario Chalmers, the Heat do not appear to have any pieces to dangle in front of the Nuggets, aside from future draft picks.

The Philadelphia 76ers still owe the Heat a protected first round pick when they acquired rookie Arnett Moultrie, the 27th pick of the 2012 NBA Draft, from the defending champs on June 28 2012.

UPDATE (1:15PM): Looks like Mozgov may not be going anywhere after all, though there is still time to make a deal.
