Rare is the case when one can begin with the bottom line, but in this instance it’s most appropriate. So, here it is… the bottom line:
Six points, 10 assists.
That’s the stat line for Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson in last night’s 28-point loss to the Brooklyn Nets, a team that’s clinging to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Lawson’s counterpoint...
Thomas Robinson has been in the NBA less than three years and the former Kansas Jayhawk will now be on his fifth NBA team once his deal with the Brooklyn Nets becomes official.
After being dealt by the Portland Trail Blazers in a deal that sent Arron Afflalo to Rip City, Robinson was immediately waived by the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets are in the early stages of a complete makeover...
The Denver Nuggets officially waived Thomas Robinson (and Victor Claver) on Sunday. And now that Robinson is on the market, multiple teams, ranging from championship contenders to those clawing for an eighth seed, are reportedly interested in his services for the stretch run of the season.
Since being drafted 18th overall in 2009, Ty Lawson has spent his entire NBA career with the Nuggets. On the court, he’s developed into one of the better point guards in the league. He finished last season tied for second in assists with 8.8 per game and is currently tied for first this season with...Read More
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...
Today is the NBA Trade Deadline and if you thought the Philadelphia 76ers were just going to stand pat then you do not know GM Sam Hinkie. Hinkie has no problem with doing trades for expiring contracts, second round or even first round picks.
That was the case today as he worked his magic this time making a trade with the Denver Nuggets. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo!...
Arron Afflalo was traded by the Denver Nuggets along with Alonzo Gee to the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday hours before the trade deadline expires. Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the trade and says Portland is sending a future first and second-round pick, Thomas Robinson, Victor Claver, and Will Barton to the Nuggets.

In the first semi-major deal of the NBA trade deadline, the struggling Denver Nuggets sent Arron Afflalo to the Portland Trail Blazers as part of a five-player deal on Thursday. Portland is also acquiring Alonzo Gee in the deal.

The Denver Nuggets are looking to deal Ty Lawson.
The Denver Nuggets are reportedly looking to deal point guard Ty Lawson before the trading deadline on Thursday afternoon. According to ESPN, Denver coach Brian Shaw wants current Indiana Pacers point guard George Hill to be Lawson’s replacement as Shaw was an assistant coach for the Pacers and is a big of Hill.
It is no secret that the Denver Nuggets are on the front lines of trade rumors this year, having reportedly been shopping players like Wilson Chandler and Arron Afflalo around, but all that talk means nothing if no team makes an offer or accepts one the Nuggets are asking for. After getting two first round picks for Timofey Mozgov in early January, the Nuggets front office is looking...
