Denver Nuggets should add a point guard

If the Denver Nuggets are going to make a splash, or for that matter any noise in the free agency pool, the position they need to look for is a third point guard. If the Nuggets are looking to add a free agent to the current roster the viable spot would be another one guard. It would benefit Denver to have a situation like they did last year when they had three productive point guards...

Denver Nuggets: Free agent targets

No there is no possible way that the Nuggets will get Lebron James, so lets just get that out of the way. They can also not get Carmelo Anthony back either, so with those fans out there with a little bit of hope, I’m sorry to ruin it for you. The Nuggets do not have the money to spend on any big free agents since they are already over the cap by more than $6.5 million. After the...

Denver Nuggets: Trades not free agents would change roster

As teams start to mix and match their rosters with free agency beginning don’t expect the Denver Nuggets to get to involved in the free agency pool. The Denver Nuggets already have 13 players under contract this summer. Thus making it difficult for GM Tim Connelly to actively pursue any free agent.

Nuggets considered trading JaVale McGee and/or Wilson Chandler

Getty Images I think that this would be a good move if the Nuggets go out and trade both because they didn’t help out the Nuggets while they both were her.  McGee doesn’t even average over 10 points for his career.  Chandler had a decent year averaging 13.6 points but besides that he is not good at all.  The Nuggets are a shooting team so I would go after some shooters like...

Nuggets happy with draft-day haul

Denver Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly and his scouting department looked tired as they addressed the media assembled at the Pepsi Center after last night’s 2014 NBA first-year player draft.
