Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

The Nuggets "drew a line" on trade talks when other teams asked for Jamal Murray, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe. The Nuggets really like Murray and they absolutely should. It showed last spring when they pushed him into the starting unit despite little experience and not even playing much point guard earlier in his career. Murray gave us a glimpse of what could be next based on his April averages of 15.1 points, 3.6 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.6 treys. Once the early-round PGs are gone in drafts, you'll have a tough time finding a guard with higher upside than Murray. He's one of our favorite targets and we're expecting his ADP to rise as we get closer to the season.

Trey Lyles    F  Nuggets

 

 

President Tim Connelly said he sees Trey Lyles as a player that can be a significant part of the rotation. The Nuggets did overpay a little on Thursday night with the No. 24 pick and Lyles for the 13th pick, so they must really like his skillset as a stretch four. Lyles had one of the most disappointing seasons last year, turning in a woeful 46.4 true shooting percentage while not making an impact on defense in his 16.3 minutes per game. The Nuggets have some question marks heading into free agency with Danilo Gallinari on the market, so that will be a key factor for Lyles' playing time.

Monte Morris    G  Nuggets

 

 

The Nuggets drafted Iowa State point guard Monte Morris with the 51st pick in the NBA Draft. Jameer Nelson is old as dirt, Jamal Murray is coming on and Emmanuel Mudiay may not be cut out to be a starting NBA point guard. Morris will simply be hoping to be on the Nuggets' roster on opening night, but he can play and it would be surprising to see him not make an NBA team this season. He's one of Iowa State's best point guards in history.

Vlatko Cancar    F  Nuggets

 

 

Denver used the No. 49 pick to take Slovenian F Vlatko Cancar. Cancar is a combo forward who has posted modest stats overseas for Mega Leks. He boasts a 7'0" wingspan and pairs a strong shooting mechanics. He's not a very physical player and he struggles against physical defenders, while tending to shy away from contact in the paint. It's unclear when he might be brought over to join the Nuggets.

Tyler Lydon    F  Nuggets

 

 

The Denver Nuggets have selected F Tyler Lydon with the 24th selection in the 2017 NBA Draft. Denver traded the No. 13 overall pick in exchange for Trey Lyles and No. 24. In two years at Syracuse, Lydon built his résumé as a stretch four with a 47.5 field goal percentage, connected at a 39.8 percent clip from deep, and hit 80.9 percent of his free throws. Lydon also checks out with NBA size at 6’10" and 225 pounds, and additionally, the big man boasts an impressive seven-foot wingspan. He doesn’t have a post game yet and he’s not an imposing presence in the paint in most facets, so he’ll need to add some strength before he can get minutes in the league. It's worth noting that the Nuggets have a looming decision to make on restricted free agent Mason Plumlee.

Trey Lyles    F  Nuggets

 

 

The Jazz will send Trey Lyles and the No. 24 pick to Denver for the 13th pick. The Jazz said they wanted to trade up for a shooter, so they went for it here to get Donovan Mitchell. As for Lyles, he had a big-time disappointing 2016-17 season even with the injuries to Derrick Favors. This is a great move for him as he goes from one of the slowest offenses to one of the best. He still has some work to do to get back in fantasy owners' good graces.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

The Suns and Nuggets discussed a trade that would feature Eric Bledsoe in exchange for Emmanuel Mudiay and the No. 13 pick, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com. The Nuggets really don't value Mudiay too much anymore, so they would have no problem giving him up now that Jamal Murray has clearly passed him on the depth. Denver reportedly also discussed Mudiay with the Knicks, but it's unclear if they gained any traction. The Suns are also likely looking to deal away Bledsoe to get him off their books as they stack up their picks for the future. Both the Nuggets and Suns are teams to watch tonight.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

The Nuggets have tendered a qualifying offer to Mason Plumlee, making him a restricted free agent. Nuggets GM Tim Connelly called Plumlee "a huge piece of our core" back in April and they traded away Jusuf Nurkic and a first round pick to acquire him from Portland, so expect them to bring him back unless his price gets out of hand. Assuming he returns to Denver, Plumlee will back up Nikola Jokic in 2017-18 and may see sporadic minutes beside him as well, but he will likely be a low-end fantasy asset. In 27 games for the Nuggets, he averaged 9.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 blocks.
