What's next? Will the Nuggets move their minimal 'Manimal'?

It feels like Kenneth Faried has been an NBA player for at least a dozen years. He’s only going into his sixth season, and just 26 years old.

So when the Nuggets are reported to be close to a deal with free agent Mike Miller, it makes me ponder what Tim Connelly is up to behind his office doors.
