Paul Millsap    F  Nuggets

 

 

Paul Millsap hosted a minicamp for the Nuggets this week in Atlanta. Wilson Chandler, Malik Beasley, Jamal Murray, Will Barton, Jameer Nelson, Trey Lyles, Darrell Arthur, and Kenneth Faried were all present as the Nuggets look to get a head start on the season. It's a sign that Millsap is rejuvenated after signing a three-year, $90 million deal this summer and that he's ready to take on a leadership role in Denver. Millsap is coming off a down year, but he's joining a top-5 offense in the NBA and should thrive next to a pass-first Nikola Jokic. He's a bargain at his current fourth-round ADP.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray said the trade rumors this summer have been "nerve wracking." "It’s different knowing I could be in Cleveland right now. I could be in Minnesota," Murray said. "I could be anywhere in a couple days. It’s kind of nerve wracking because you don’t know what’s going on and there are so many rumors. I just have to stay ready and prepared for any opportunity." We're big fans of Murray over here and are expecting a breakout with the Nuggets and their elite offense, so a trade would certainly hurt his value. For now, it sounds like the trade rumors have slightly cooled, but it's possible Murray is in a Kyrie Irving trade.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

Nuggets coach Mike Malone said that Emmanuel Mudiay has been "terrific" this summer. Malone told Mudiay that this offseason is the biggest summer of his life and challenged him to stay around in Denver to work with the coaching staff as much as possible. The third-year guard took Malone's advice and we've heard plenty of positive reports out of Denver. "The way I’m approaching this season is not thinking too much and just being myself regardless of what happens, not trying to please nobody," he said. Mudiay is only 21 and will hopefully get his career back on track, but his outlook for 2017-18 isn't great with Jamal Murray and Jameer Nelson likely ahead of him on the depth chart.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

Emmanuel Mudiay had a productive outing in the 2017 Africa Game, scoring 22 points with eight rebounds, nine assists, three steals, four turnovers and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes. We've seen Mudiay go off in friendly games before, so this doesn't move the needle on him. He will still need to work on his shooting and he did have a couple very ugly misses in this game, as well. Mudiay is way behind Jamal Murray and isn't worth drafting in most leagues.

Emmanuel Mudiay    G  Nuggets

 

 

Emmanuel Mudiay said he'll be working out more in Denver this offseason. He's lost his starting job to breakout candidate Jamal Murray, but Mudiay and Murray did log a grand total of 341 minutes together last season. Mudiay wasn't very good next to Murray with only a 31.9 field goal percentage, so he may need to add more to his game to have success in that lineup combo. Mudiay isn't a great fantasy target.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer said he's hearing that the Nuggets won't package Gary Harris and Jamal Murray in a potential deal for Kyrie Irving. It's worth noting that the Nuggets were reportedly willing to let Harris go earlier this summer in a three-team trade between Cleveland and Indiana (with Paul George joining the Cavs and Kevin Love moving to Denver), but Indiana's new GM backed out at the last minute. Harris' trade value is understandably high and the Nuggets would like to sign him to an extension, but it's hard to imagine him staying in Denver if they are able to acquire Irving. Murray and Nikola Jokic are likely the only untouchables on the roster.

Jimmer Fredette    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jimmer Fredette has agreed to return to the Shanghai Sharks of China on a one-year deal worth roughly $1.8 million. That's more than he could make in the NBA, and he actually gets to play in China, so the move makes sense. Maybe he'll be able to earn a 10-day deal with an NBA club once his season in China is over.

Monte Morris    G  Nuggets

 

 

The Nuggets announced that they have signed rookie Monte Morris to a two-way contract. Morris was drafted with the 51st pick of the 2017 NBA Draft. He averaged 9.5 points, 2.2 rebounds, a team-high 4.3 assists and 1.3 steals in six games for Denver’s Las Vegas Summer League team. Morris can be ignored in fantasy leagues, as he'll likely spend most of the 2017-18 season in the G-League.
