Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets



Danilo Gallinari will reportedly opt out of his contract in order to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Gallinari put in averages of 18.2 points, 5.2 boards, 2.1 dimes and 2.0 triples per game on 44.7 percent shooting this past season, so he shouldn't have much trouble finding a team willing to reward him with a long-term, big-money deal despite the health concerns. GM Tim Connelly has said that he'll make bringing back Gallinari a "top priority" for the Nuggets, and Gallinari has indicated that he's open to re-signing with Denver, but there's still a lot of time to go until free agency.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets



Nuggets F Juan Hernangomez plans to play at Summer League this season. "I like to compete," Hernangomez said. "[The Nuggets] asked me if I was down for [Summer League] and I really would like to go and play a couple of games, be around the team and keep developing as a player." The Nuggets' prospect may also join the Spanish National Team for EuroBasket 2017, giving him plenty of momentum heading into training camp.

Alonzo Gee    G/F  Nuggets



The Kings hosted eight free agents during workout on Wednesday, including Alonzo Gee, Phil Pressey, JaKarr Sampson and Ben Bentil. We're very early in the free-agent process and there's no reason to think any of these players will hold fantasy value, on the Kings or any other team.

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.
