The Denver Nuggets are clearing house with only a few hours left before the NBA trade deadline on Thursday afternoon. JaVale McGee appears to be the next notable player that might be sent elsewhere.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, McGee may be headed to the Philadelphia 76ers:

McGee has struggled to say healthy over the last few seasons and has seen a severe drop in production on the basketball floor in Denver. McGee played in only five games last season and 17 so far this year while averaging 5.2 points, 2.8 rebonds an 1.1 blocks per game.

With the Nuggets seemingly ready to move every asset of value before the trade deadline, it comes as no surprise McGee would be one of the players sent packing.

Along with McGee potentially being on the move, the Nuggets have traded Arron Afflalo to the Portland Trail Blazers. Afflalo was an attractive trade piece that was getting a lot of interest around the league as well as Wilson Chandler.

Another player that could be on the move is Ty Lawson. The Nuggets have been dangling Lawson in trade talks as of late with the Los Angeles Lakers being the most recent team to express interest in the veteran point guard.
