Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray (groin) has progressed to light running and getting up jump shots. Murray was recently cleared to begin basketball-related activities after undergoing surgery back in April, although he's still not been cleared for contact, and as of right now, Summer League doesn't seem like a very realistic option. Still, he has plenty of time to get ready for the 2017-18 season, and he could see a big jump in his development during Year-2, particularly if the Nuggets lose Danilo Gallinari during free agency.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Rudy Gobert are the finalists for Most Improved Player. No sign of Otto Porter, Tim Hardaway Jr. or James Johnson for this award. The three nominees dazzled us throughout the year with Giannis and Gobert earning All-NBA Second Team nods -- Jokic did receive a first-team vote. Antetokounmpo is considered as the heavy favorite here and there's almost no chance fantasy owners will be able to draft him after No. 5 next year.

Mike Malone    C  Nuggets

 

 

General manager Tim Connelly said the Nuggets could try to move up from 13 to around eight or nine. He added the Nuggets aren't looking for a specific position and just want best available. That plan seems to have worked out so far after the Nuggets went guard heavy with Jamal Murray and Malik Beasley in the draft last year.

Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Will Barton will not agree to a contract extension with the Nuggets this offseason. It's a no-brainer move for Barton, as he can make a lot more money if he waits until he hits free agency in the summer of 2018. With one year left on his deal and the Nuggets loaded with depth at shooting guard, Barton is a prime trade candidate. He finished the 2016-17 season with averages of 13.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.5 triples on 44.3 percent shooting.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray (groin) had successful surgery to repair core muscle-related injuries. The surgery was performed on Thursday in Philadelphia and general manager Tim Connelly said it was for a "couple" injuries. Murray will resume basketball related activities this summer and is expected to be at full strength when the Nuggets open training camp this fall. There is no word on if Murray will be at Summer League, but it's possible he won't be all the way back.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets

 

 

The Nuggets are "hopeful" that Juancho Hernangomez will play with the Spanish national team this summer, according to GM Tim Connelly. Hernangomez played three seasons in Spain's professional league, culminating in 2015-16 averages of 9.7 points, 1.0 threes, 5.7 boards, 0.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.3 blocks in 23.7 minutes. The 21-year-old is on a rookie-scale contract, with Denver owing him no more than $3.3 million per season through the 2019-20 season, so it makes sense that they'd want to see him develop and compete at a high level. We'll keep a close eye on his progress this offseason.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

General manager Tim Connelly said the top priority is to bring back Danilo Gallinari for next season. "You never know how the market is going to progress," Connelly said. There is a lot to this story with Gallo having a $16.1 million player option, and also Connelly said the Nuggets need to add more perimeter defense around Nikola Jokic. Gallinari cleared the 60-game mark for just the second time since joining the Nuggets for a full season in 2011-12, so it makes sense for him to hit the market at age 28. Plus, Juancho Hernangomez probably deserves more minutes for a litany of reasons.
