Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic will not play for Serbia at the EuroBasket tournament this summer. Jokic will instead devote his offseason to perfecting his craft, and the 22-year-old could be in for a huge Year-3, particularly if Denver is not able to retain Danilo Gallinari during free agency. He was a top-20 stud last season with averages of 16.7 points, 9.8 boards, 4.9 dimes, 0.6 triples, 0.8 steals and 0.7 blocks per game, and he should come off the board towards the end of the first-round on draft day.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

The Clippers are reportedly trying to find a third team with cap space to help facilitate a sign-and-trade deal for Danilo Gallinari. To be clear, Gallinari has not yet made a decision as to where he'd like to play next season, and while he has hinted that his preference would be to remain with Denver, it's tough to trust comments from players around this time of the year. Gallinari should be able to flirt with mid-round value regardless of the name across his jersey, but he doesn't have the best track record with staying healthy, making him a risky fantasy target. For what it's worth, the Kings are reportedly no longer an option for Danilo.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN said the Clippers are "focused" on free agents Danilo Gallinari and Joe Ingles. Wojnarowski adds that one of the Clippers priorities is to bring in more shooting, as the franchise is expected to lose J.J. Redick. Gallinari said this week that his goal is to remain in Denver, but his leverage in contract talks will only increase every time he's linked to another team. The Nuggets are the only team that can offer him a five-year deal, so they are still considered the favorites.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

Danilo Gallinari said on Thursday that his "goal is to remain in Denver." Earlier this month, Gallinari was quoted as saying that the Nuggets were not his first choice. However, Gallo clearly stated a preference to stay in the Rockies via an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport. "My goal is to remain in Denver," said Gallinari. "And I will have with the Nuggets one of the first meetings. They have the priority. I want to talk to them and listen to their offer. Nuggets are my first option." Denver has a clear advantage, as they can offer a five-year deal, while every other team can only offer four.

Mo Williams    G  Nuggets

 

 

Mo Williams is working towards making an NBA comeback. After being waived on Jan. 24, Williams didn't get picked up and didn't play at all in the 2016-17 season. Williams is going to turn 35 later this year and his 8.2 points per game in 2015-16 is his lowest average since his rookie year way back in 2003-04.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray played 2-on-2 on Tuesday for the first time since undergoing groin surgery back in April. "He’s close. He thinks he’s ready to go right now," Connelly said. "Jamal is champing at the bit to play. He played two-on-two [Tuesday] morning, so his progression is coming along and he’s approaching rehab with the same aggression as he approaches play on the court. So I’m not surprised. He’s also huge right now. He’s put on good weight." Murray isn't expected to play at summer league, but he should be 100 percent by training camp. He could start at point for the Nuggets next season, so Murray could be in for a breakout Year-2 in Denver.

Vlatko Cancar    F  Nuggets

 

 

Nuggets second-round pick Vlatko Cancar will play "a couple of seasons" overseas before coming to the NBA, according to Denver reporter Chris Dempsey. As with many players selected late in the second round, Cancar will be stashed overseas. This benefits both parties. Cancar will have plenty of time to develop his body and his game, while the Nuggets don't have to worry about him taking up a valuable roster spot.

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.
