When Orlando was trying to get Chucky Atkins from the Nuggets he was very interested. He was traded to the Thunder, but he is still interested in going to Orlando if the opportunity comes knocking.
"Of course," said Atkins, who lives in Orlando. "I’m a veteran guy. If I had an opportunity to win a championship, that’s what every guy at this level wants to do. . . . But I’m not sitting here and saying I want to be moved . . . If it happens, it happens."
The Oklahoma City trade with Denver sent Johan Petro to the Nuggets. Petro had two points and four rebounds in the seven minutes he played against his old team. While Atkins did not play the whole game.
