Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

Nuggets GM Tim Connelly said that Danilo Gallinari has been a "core piece" of the Nuggets for a "very long time." "We have a fantastic relationship, so we’re always very up front and honest," Connelly said. "If he opts out we’ll figure out how we approach that. He’s a guy who really enjoys Denver. He had a career year in a bunch of different statistical categories." It's a no-brainer for Gallo to opt out of the final year of his deal to take advantage of the rising salary cap, and while Gallo has said that he would like to finish his career as a Nugget, money talks. Gallo averaged 18.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.0 triples on 44.7 percent shooting this season, appearing in 63 games. He will turn 29 in August.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Nuggets GM Tim Connelly praised Gary Harris for his breakout 2016-17 season. "Gary deserves so much credit. He’s a guy who has worked his way into the player he is today," Connelly said. Harris averaged 14.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.9 triples on 50.2 percent shooting, and while he only played 57 games due to a couple nagging injuries, he returned top-60 value in standard leagues on a per-game basis. Harris should reprise his role as the starting SG next season and Connelly added that he "is really emblematic of who we are trying to be," so expect him to take another step forward in 2017-18.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Jamal Murray had 27 points, six assists and two rebounds in 41 minutes vs. the Thunder during Wednesday's season finale, making 10-of-17 shots with four 3-pointers. "Toughness is what jumps to mind," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said of Murray. "Both mental toughness and physical toughness. He’s gone through a lot of pain this year, a lot of injuries. He never complains ... I’m very proud of him." Denver will absolutely carve out a big role for him next season, probably at point guard, making him an intriguing upside guy to target in any format.

Nikola Jokic    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Nikola Jokic finished the season on a high note, posting 29 points (9-of-14 FGs, 11-of-14 FTs), 16 rebounds, eight assists, five blocks and one steal. Jokic had a phenomenal season, but that doesn't mean he'll rest on his laurels this summer. "At the end of the season I’m going to talk to [team trainers Steve Hess and Felipe Eichenberger] and the front office about how I can improve my body," he said. You'll need to spend a first-round pick to acquire him next season.

Juan Hernangomez    F  Nuggets

 

 

Juan Hernangomez started vs. OKC on Wednesday and had nine points on 4-of-17 shooting (1-of-9 from deep), with seven rebounds and one assist. The rookie got the start with Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler both resting in a meaningless game, the Nuggets having been officially eliminated from the playoffs last week. Gallinari has a $16.1 million player option which he'll assuredly decline in favor of free agency, and if he doesn't return Hernangomez could see his role spike next season.

Malik Beasley    G  Nuggets

 

 

Malik Beasley had another impressive game on Wednesday, making 8-of-17 field goals with one 3-pointer for 17 points, three assists, three rebounds and one steal in 40 minutes. Beasley was coming off a 16-point game with extras, and he's giving the Nuggets' decision-makers something to think about as they head into the offseason. Will Barton, Gary Harris, Jamal Murray, Emmanuel Mudiay and Jameer Nelson all have guaranteed contracts next season, however, so it's hard to get too excited about Beasley's immediate prospects.

Wilson Chandler    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Wilson Chandler will not play vs. OKC on Wednesday. Mike Malone already said that Chandler would "probably" be rested, so this is the least surprising news of the night. Juan Hernangomez is slated for heavy minutes as a starter.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

Gary Harris (foot, knee) is out for Wednesday against the Thunder. It's being called a left foot contusion and right knee soreness for one of the most underrated shooting guards since the break. Malik Beasley gets another big chance to build off his career high while Jamal Murray should have a big chance in front of him.
