Over the last few days, it has become increasingly clear that Bones Hyland’s time with the Denver Nuggets may be coming to an end.
The guard, who is in his second season with the NBA, hasn’t played the last four games with Denver, and there are more and more rumors of him departing the team before Thursday’s trade deadline.
He is a legitimate young talent and should be on the radar of multiple franchises.
So, where could Hyland be headed?

According to Denver Post writer Mike Singer, the Toronto Raptors, New Orleans Pelicans, and Minnesota Timberwolves, all have “some level of interest” in Hyland.
Each of those teams would be a suitable new home for Hyland.
But it remains to be seen which front office would be willing to offer the best deal for the Nuggets, who aren’t willing to part with the young star for nothing.
For the season, Hyland is producing 10.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 2.8 assists.
During his first two years, he has been highlighted as an athlete with extreme drive, personality, and dedication to his team.
He’s also incredibly fun to watch, which makes him beloved by Nuggets fans.
Denver is still the best team in the West so in many ways they have the upper hand in any sort of negotiations for Hyland.
They don’t have to move him unless they are offered a package they really like.
All three of the possible suitors listed would love someone with Hyland’s energy.
The Raptors and Timberwolves are especially looking for a player like him in the backcourt.
Will any of these teams put together a deal in time to satisfy Denver and nab the up-and-coming star?NEXT: Jamal Murray Has Had A Tremendous Month
