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.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

Free agent forward Danilo Gallinari said that the Nuggets aren't his "first choice" this summer. "Nuggets are not my first choice but they are exactly at the same level of the other teams," Gallinari said. "Denver’s advantage is that they can offer me a five-year contract while other franchises can offer me a four-year deal. Nuggets are at the same level of the others." That's not what the Nuggets will want to hear, but the ball is still in their court because they can offer him the most money. If Gallo moves on this summer, Juancho Hernangomez could be a sneaky late-round flier in fantasy leagues.

Mike Malone    C  Nuggets

 

 

The Nuggets will promote Tim Connelly to President of Basketball Operations and promote Arturas Karnisovas to General Manager. The Bucks were after Karnisovas to become their GM, so Denver opted to be aggressive and retain their assistant GM with a promotion. Connelly has been terrific in identifying talent with loads of outstanding picks since he took over in 2013. The Nuggets are expected to be players in free agency this summer, so they'll be the trendy sleeper team this year.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Mike Miller said "everyone in the league is starting to take heed to and understand who" Nikola Jokic is. "He’s one of those superstars, I think he’s going to be a superstar," Miller said. "I think you’ll see even more growth at the beginning of this next year, that everyone just wants to play with. He plays that style of basketball. I’ve compared him a lot to Marc and Pau Gasol, I think he’s a lot like that." When Jokic moved back into the starting lineup on Dec. 15, the Nuggets had the best offensive rating for the rest of the season. The 22-year-old big man averaged 17.7 points, 11.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 0.6 blocks, 1.0 steals and 0.6 treys after the All-Star break and should be coming off the board in the first round of fantasy drafts next season.

Mike Miller    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Mike Miller said he hasn't decided if he will coach when he retires. The veteran sharpshooter is 37 years old, but he hasn't indicated that he's ready to retire just yet. He has one year left on his deal with the Nuggets for $3.5 million, but it's not guaranteed. He was more of a locker room guy during the 2016-17 season with just 20 appearances, so it's hard to imagine them bringing him back.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray (groin) was back in the gym for his rehab on Friday. He's been in the gym several times this month and appears to be getting closer to a return. Murray is still not expected to play in Summer League next month, but the chances of him getting healthy enough to participate are growing. Murray should be considered the favorite to start for the Nuggets, which makes him a very interesting sleeper in such a high-powered offense.

Jimmer Fredette    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jimmer Fredette worked out with the Nuggets on Thursday. Fredette is coming off a dominant season in China where he averaged over 37 points per game, but he turned down multiple 10-day contract offers from NBA teams when he returned to the states so he could spend time with his wife and newborn child. Fredette can shoot the lights out, but he's struggled to translate it to the NBA level. He played for the Nuggets at Summer League in 2016, so maybe he will do the same this year.
My mom just asked me to pick up "butt nuggets" from the store then started cracking up.. she's talking about eggs. Worse than a dad joke.
Couldn't help but treat myself to 20 chicken nuggets 😩 and I wonder why I haven't got a toned bod 👍🏼
