Denver Nuggets: Are there any free agents worth pursuing?

The Denver Nuggets have one of the deepest rosters in the NBA, so when I look into the remaining pool of free agents there is little to no worth that needs to be pursued. But also when looking at the roster, something needs to change in order for them to become a championship team. They have a lot of talent, but the power of a big name player isn’t behind them. Every team that...

Denver Nuggets: Gearing up for a big move

I’ve said many times this summer that the Nuggets have a deep roster, one that will make it hard for a free agent to come in to compete, and even harder for the team to pay him. 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. Mike Miller Miller averaged 7.1 points and 1.6...

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. The Nuggets are already either close to or at the cap salary projected for the 2014...

Denver Nuggets: Kevin Love talks

Kevin Love is one of the best players in the NBA.
