Nuggets will face Ty Lawson in season opener

Why the Nuggets dealt Ty Lawson

For the Denver Nuggets, trading Ty Lawson was a move that could easily be justified both on and off the court. Lawson's troubles with alcohol played a big role, but the selection of Emmanuel Mudiay with the seventh pick in the 2015 draft also may have factored in heavily to the deal with the Houston Rockets. Here's more from Gerald Bourguet at Hoops Habit:  "Still, the biggest...

Josh Kroenke corroborates Denver Nuggets’ mishandling of Ty Lawson

  Several days ago I detailed the Denver Nuggets’ botched handling of Ty Lawson in a diatribe which you can find here. The general thesis of my argument was that the Nuggets overvalued Lawson from the get-go and waited entirely too long to trade him.

What The Ty Lawson Trade Means For Denver

Could the Nuggets have received more in return for Ty Lawson? Maybe. But no one – other than a handful of NBA execs behind closed doors and Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who is somehow the Association’s version of Michael Keaton in “Multiplicity” – will ever truly know. There will always be speculation that Lawson could have, or should have, fetched more. On draft night...
