Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Coach Mike Malone said Wilson Chandler and Will Barton are "more than ready" to pick up minutes at small forward. Chandler played mostly four last year, so that may change with Paul Millsap in the mix. Malone did say it would be by committee to replace Danilo Gallinari's playing time, so it won't just be on Chandler. Malone added other guys will step up, so it's still possible Juancho Hernangomez gets in the mix to help out. Another interesting takeaway is Barton playing more three, which could open up minutes for Malik Beasley. Basically, the Nuggets are really deep 2-5.

Malik Beasley    G  Nuggets

 

 

Malik Beasley made 12-of-30 from the field for 29 points against the Rockets on Friday, adding six rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers. He was the go-to scorer tonight and filled it up with a variety of buckets. Of course, Beasley is still not going to touch Gary Harris' playing time and the Nuggets still have Will Barton, but it wouldn't be a shock to see him in the rotation now that Danilo Gallinari is a Clipper. Don't forget Beasley went off late last year with 16.5 points per game in the last two outings. Expect him to fire away all week.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets

 

 

Juancho Hernangomez scored 21 points with eight rebounds, two assists, seven turnovers, two steals and four 3-pointers against the Rockets on Friday. There's a chance he could start for the Nuggets and coach Mike Malone keeps Wilson Chandler as a four man behind Paul Millsap. Hernangomez is going to be an off-the-ball guy with the big club, but clearly he'll get some reps as a playmaker in Vegas. He's more of a late-round guy in deep leagues for now.

Tyler Lydon    F  Nuggets

 

 

Tyler Lydon scored six points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Rockets on Friday. He has the height at 6'10" and can definitely shoot it, but Lydon doesn't really have the strength or other attributes to make him a reliable four in the NBA. Until he can bulk up, he'll be buried on the depth chart for this season and possibly beyond that.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray (groin) will not play in Las Vegas Summer League. "At this time I don’t want to force it," Murray said. "It’s good to be out there, working on my conditioning, how I’m moving, all of that; just get back to basketball movements." He has been practicing with the team and has been going through some on-court work, as well. While he is still not 100 percent, Murray said his legs are getting stronger and said his pain threshold was why he played through the injury last season. We're expecting plenty of blue arrows to fly in Denver with Murray as one of our favorite breakout candidates.

Tyler Lydon    F  Nuggets

 

 

The Nuggets have signed Tyler Lydon. The stretch four out of Syracuse was the 24th pick in the draft, but he's not expected to get a lot burn in his rookie season. As long as Paul Millsap, Kenneth Faried and Trey Lyles are healthy, it's hard to imagine Lydon making a fantasy impact.

Kenneth Faried    F  Nuggets

 

 

With the Nuggets adding Paul Millsap, teams have begun to inquire on the availability of Kenneth Faried. Faried doesn't make much sense in Denver with their wealth of power forwards, and his name has seemingly been perpetually floated in trade rumors since his sophomore season, but maybe this is the year he'll finally be traded. Faried could benefit from a change of scenery, but it's unlikely he'll be anything more than a backup, regardless of where he winds up.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

Danilo Gallinari is leaning towards joining the Clippers according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The deal would reportedly be for three years and $65 million, so that would be out of the Nuggets price range unless they shed some contracts. The two sides are working on a sign-and-trade deal, but they are still sorting out the details. Gallinari made a "strong impression," during his meeting over the weekend, so it sounds like a deal is imminent. If Gallo ends up leaving Denver, he would likely be a mid-round pick in Los Angeles as their No. 2 option on offense.

Paul Millsap    F  Nuggets

 

 

Paul Millsap said that the Hawks never even made him a contract offer. Wow. The Hawks were expected to make it a "priority" to bring Millsap back to Atlanta, so it's odd that they didn't fight to keep their All-Star PF. Millsap is 32 years and signed a three-year, $90 million deal with Denver, so the Hawks probably didn't want to commit to that type of money since they are nowhere close to being a contender anymore. The Hawks will have to bring in some frontcourt depth this summer, but rookie John Collins is already on the radar as a sleeper in deeper formats. The Millsap departure is also good news for the fantasy value of Taurean Prince.
