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 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...
