Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

After re-signing Mason Plumlee, the Nuggets are turning their attention towards a contract extension for Gary Harris. The Nuggets have until opening night to negotiate an extension, but based on GM Tim Connelly's comments back in April, Harris should have no trouble landing a lucrative deal. The 23-year-old SG averaged career highs in points (14.9), rebounds (3.1), assists (2.9) and 3-pointers (1.9) last season, shooting 50.2 percent from the field and posting top-60 value in standard leagues on a per-game basis. He's one of our favorite mid-round targets this season.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to Denver. General manager Tim Connelly said back in April that the restricted free agent was going to be a "huge piece" of their core, so he was never expected to leave Denver. Plumlee will be Nikola Jokic's backup this season and will compete for minutes with Kenneth Faried, so his outlook is far from ideal. The arrival of Paul Millsap doesn't help either. Plumlee averaged 9.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 blocks with the Nuggets last season in 23.4 minutes per game, but he will have a tough time matching those numbers this time around.

Josh Childress    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Josh Childress had reportedly agreed to a deal with the Denver Nuggets. Childress has not played in the NBA since December of 2013, when he suited up for the New Orleans Pelicans. He spent last season in Japan. We don't yet have details, but the contract is very likely non-guaranteed, as Childress is a longshot to make the Nuggets final 15-man roster.

Kenneth Faried    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried said that although he'd like to be a starter for the Nuggets, he's also comfortable coming off the bench. "I’m a competitor so I’m going to want to fight to be in the [starting] five," Faried said. "We’re going to have good battles at practice if I come off the bench. When I come off the bench I’m going to still play hard and care because at the end of the day it’s about the team." With Paul Millsap in Denver it will be hard for Faried, who is often mentioned in trade rumors, to exceed the 21.2 minutes he averaged last season.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets

 

 

Juan Hernangomez scored a team-high 18 points during Spain's easy win over Romania on Monday, adding 12 rebounds, one 3-pointer, one assist and two turnovers in 27 minutes. Hernangomez not only led Team Spain in scoring but also in shot attempts as he regularly asserted himself in the Spanish offense against a severely outmatched Romanian squad. Unfortunately, this is not a trend that will continue into the regular-season, as Denver currently has six power forwards on the roster, so Hernangomez will be fighting for reserve minutes at the four or playing out of position for spot minutes at the three. At best, he can be viewed as a last-round flier in deep leagues.

Chuck Hayes    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Chuck Hayes has returned to the Rockets as pro player personnel scout. The Chuck Wagon will hitch up with the Rockets once again. Hayes worked with the Nuggets last season and will evaluate NBA and other players while also working with the player development team.
