A New Market for Will the Thrill?

​ After two-and-a-half seasons mostly warming the bench for the Portland Trail Blazers, mercurial guard Will Barton was traded to the Denver Nuggets in the deal that sent Arron Afflalo to Portland. It probably didn’t surprise anybody that Barton’s scoring average jumped after the trade, going from 3.0 to 11.0 points per game. Barton was behind an entire playoff-caliber...

Nuggets vow to speed up tempo next season

DENVER (AP) The job requirement for the next head coach of the Denver Nuggets is pretty simple and straightforward: Must let the team play at an uptempo pace. You know, the way George Karl used to do when the Nuggets perennially made the postseason before he was fired. That's a winning brand of basketball in the Mile High City - during the regular season, anyway. And that's what...

Melvin Hunt’s final audition in Golden State

Nuggets looked to move Lawson at deadline

Ty Lawson may have been a huge part of the Denver Nuggets franchise for his first six seasons in the league, but that may be about to change. Before the trade deadline, Nuggets management was looking for multiple first round draft picks for the former University of Northern Carolina point guard.

Nuggets need some shooters this off-season

Interim head coach Melvin Hunt has done a hell of job making the Denver Nuggets watchable again, but for all his efforts, this team is still capable of throwing up stinkers like Wednesday night’s 99-85 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. How, after blowing out the Orlando Magic on the road and hanging tough against playoff teams like the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat, can the Nuggets...

Denver Nuggets: The race for worst

The NBA draft lottery puts teams in the association in a precarious spot when the season is winding down to its end. There are the the roughly 20 to 21 teams that are trying to make it into the post season.

Are the Denver Nuggets trying to tank?

You’ve probably heard by now that the Denver Nuggets, they of the 12th place record in the Western Conference, opted to rest three starters for their game against the Memphis Grizzlies Monday night.

Denver Nuggets fire Brian Shaw

In a less-than-surprising move, the Denver Nuggets have fired head coach Brian Shaw. The team is currently 20-39 on the season and simply hasn’t played inspired basketball this season. That came to a head recently when it was reported that players are breaking team huddles with a countdown to the end of the season. Definitely not a good sign. Including this season, Shaw was a...

Sixers Rare Buyers at the Deadline, Acquire JaVale McGee

Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie has a plan. It might be a plan that forced the team into a two-year stretch that remains among the worst in NBA history. But it’s still a plan. Now starting to reap the benefit of actually “tanking” since the start of last season, Philadelphia’s salary cap and roster flexibility afforded it the ability to pick up big man JaVale...

Denver Nuggets trade rumors: Will offers be made?
