Kosta Koufos may yet be done growing.
The 7-foot Koufos, who is 22, was told by a doctor this offseason that his growth plates were still open. And while he isn’t taller than he was last season, the possibility remains that Koufos could inch higher.
Or broader. Koufos, a three-year veteran, said this morning that his wingspan is now 7-7.
It may all be extremely relevant to the...
So on opening night, will Al Harrington be the Nuggets' starting power forward? Will he even be a member of the Nuggets? Or will he return to his reserve role?
One byproduct of the concurrent free-agent period and training camp is that several teams are playing with smaller-than-usual rosters.

The Toronto Raptors announced Saturday they have signed restricted free-agent forward Gary Forbes to an offer sheet. Per team policy, financial details were not disclosed.
The Denver Nuggets are expected to receive the offer sheet today. Under the terms of the NBA’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement, beginning Sunday the Nuggets will have three days to match [...]
Beijing 101, Zhejiang 98: Both JR Smith and his Zhejiang squad came into this game about as hot as it gets. Smith? He’s scored 98 points in his last two outings. The team? They’ve won five in a row. Despite 43 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists from JR, their win streak came to an end on their own floor at the hands of the undefeated (9-0) Beijing Ducks.

According to league sources, Milwaukee matched a four-year, $18.7 million offer by the Denver Nuggets on Saturday and retained restricted free agent Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.
