Nuggets Rebuilding Around Gallinari, Nurkic; Could Trade Lawson, Faried

The Denver Nuggets are expected to make Ty Lawson and/or Kenneth Faried available in trade talks before the June 25th draft. The Nuggets believe Danilo Gallinari and Jusuf Nurkic are the two centerpieces of their rebuilding efforts.

The right pick at No. 7

It’s no secret that June 25, 2015 is a pivotal day in the young tenure of Tim Connelly. The Nuggets vice president of basketball operations has little to no room for error when it comes to the seventh-overall pick in the NBA Draft. His team has too many needs on the court, and in the locker room, to miss in the first round of 2015. Denver not only needs a player that’ll become...

Who should the Nuggets draft at No. 7?

The Nuggets have their highest draft pick since selecting Carmelo Anthony with the third overall pick in 2003. Seven is notorious for being a lucky number. Current NBA MVP Steph Curry was drafted No. 7. The Nuggets have a great opportunity to begin the rebuilding process with this pick, but they have to be smart about it. They can’t take Raef LaFrentz when Paul Pierce, Vince Carter...

Is it too soon to grade the Denver Nuggets' front office moves?

Tim Connelly's barely been on the job for two years, but he's already made enough moves within that span to give an idea as to his managerial acumen. There were bad moves – the JJ Hickson, Nate Robinson and Kenneth Faried signings – but also some pretty good ones, like his draft night trade that landed Jusuf Nurkic and Gary Harris.So what do all of these moves tell us about Connelly...

Draft lottery will impact Denver Nuggets' coaching search

If you're surprised that the Denver Nuggets haven't hired a head coach yet, don't be. For one, the season still isn't over, and some of the assistant coaches the Nuggets might want to interview, such as Alvin Gentry, are still with teams in the playoffs.
