The Denver Nuggets are slowly starting to rebuild their front office and coaching staff after a steady exodus of folks, either by choice (Masai Ujiri and Pete D’Alessandro) or by force (George Karl).
On Monday, a new executive vice president of basketball operations had been named. On Tuesday, a deserving head coaching candidate went through the interview process. What will Wednesday bring in Denver?

The Nuggets are searching for a replacement for George Karl.
Conventional wisdom usually dictates once ownership dictates it’s time to switch their front office up in lieu of a new general manager, it’s followed by a mass exodus of the front office; you could call it spring cleaning.

''I think 100 percent,'' Kroenke said of the prospect of inking Igoudala. ''I had a good conversation with his agent last week. Andre is somebody we definitely want to bring back, and Andre is aware of our intentions to bring him back as well.''
Andre Iguodala and the Top 10 Small Forwards in Free Agency

1. Andre Iguodala- Denver Nuggets (Early Termination Option)
Iggy is easily the best wing player in this year’s free agency, if he opts out of his $16.2 million contract for next season that is. Iguodala is still just 29 years old and he is one of the best perimeter defenders...

The name I've heard most as a possible replacement for Doc Rivers if he leaves the Celtics: Brian Shaw.
— Baxter Holmes (@BaxterHolmes) June 17, 2013
Brian Shaw has been bouncing around like a pinball the past few weeks. As soon as Shaw misses out on one coaching gig, as another team hires a coach, he immediately becomes a front runner for another team. Who knows what type...
There hasn't been much news out of the 76ers organization lately. The original article was posted on Philly.com earlier in the week. Be sure to check it out here. --The Sixers coaching search has been unquestionably quiet so far this summer, and reportshave surfaced recently stating that the selection might not be made until after the NBA Draft on June 27. Although it seems...
You can't make this up. Talks between the Clippers and Celtics to allow the Clippers to sign Doc Rivers to coach their team are taking a break so that the Clippers' owner can take another coaching candidate, Brian Shaw, out to dinner. I'm wondering if Brian Shaw feels used. Actually maybe Danny should join in on that dinner because I'd love to see Brian Shaw hired...

Talks between the Clippers and Boston Celtics about a possible mega-deal that would send coach Doc Rivers and forward Kevin Garnett to L.A. again have reached an impasse, according to several NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly.
And again, the Clippers are saying they're prepared to move on if they cant hire Rivers, and are looking to continue conversations...
LA Times reporter Brad Turner was the first to report that the talks are off because the Clippers will not include two 1st round draft picks.
The Clippers claim that owner Donald Sterling will meet with Bryon Scott and Brian Shaw later this week.
Hold your ground, Danny.
Curious how Chris Paul feels about this?
I don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting a bit burned out on these on again, off again, on again talks between the Celtics and the Clippers. First they were deep in discussions. The Clippers call off the talks because they won't include Bledsoe. Danny gives in and is willing to deal without Bledsoe. The Clippers call off talks because they don't want to...
