Kenneth Faried made 10-of-12 shots to score 25 points during Wednesday's exhibition, adding seven rebounds, one assist and one block in just 19 minutes of action. Faried didn't play in Denver's preseason opener and he's been vocal about his displeasure coming off the bench, which is where he was tonight. This game was a nice reminder of his sheer talent, but the Nuggets' frontcourt is too deep to expect any fantasy miracles -- he's just a deep-league flier while Nikola Jokic, Paul Millsap, Mason Plumlee and Trey Lyles are around.

Faried is part of an "open competition" for the backup forward spot behind Paul Millsap, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

Kenneth Faried (illness) did not practice on Wednesday. He's had some interesting comments recently, saying he's not a bench player. Faried is certainly going to come off the bench behind Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic. Plus, he may even have to earn any playing time with Mason Plumlee back in the fold.

Kenneth Faried implied he will not be happy coming off the bench in Denver this season. "I’m not a bench player. I’ve been saying that for the longest. I’m a starter," Faried said. "If this team doesn’t want or respect me enough to play me the minutes or whatever that I’m going to play or that I deserve to play, then I understand that. There are 29 other [teams]. Maybe I go somewhere else and do what I need to do there." The Nuggets acquired Paul Millsap this summer, so there's no way that Faried will start, and he's essentially publicly demanding a trade with these comments. As long as he's in Denver, Faried will have zero fantasy value.

Kenneth Faried said that although he'd like to be a starter for the Nuggets, he's also comfortable coming off the bench. "I’m a competitor so I’m going to want to fight to be in the [starting] five," Faried said. "We’re going to have good battles at practice if I come off the bench. When I come off the bench I’m going to still play hard and care because at the end of the day it’s about the team." With Paul Millsap in Denver it will be hard for Faried, who is often mentioned in trade rumors, to exceed the 21.2 minutes he averaged last season.

With the Nuggets adding Paul Millsap, teams have begun to inquire on the availability of Kenneth Faried. Faried doesn't make much sense in Denver with their wealth of power forwards, and his name has seemingly been perpetually floated in trade rumors since his sophomore season, but maybe this is the year he'll finally be traded. Faried could benefit from a change of scenery, but it's unlikely he'll be anything more than a backup, regardless of where he winds up.
