Sherrod Blakely.  The Celtics beat writer reports that interest in the former Sixers (and Nuggets and Wiz) big man has been rekindled even after their failed dalliance last March.  Both the C’s and McGee had mutual interest on a multi-year contract last spring...

Tim Connelly faces a huge test

Will it be a Curry or a Nene? Last night, we heard the almost audible collective groan of Denver Nuggets fans as the team kept their streak of failing to improve their stock via the NBA draft lottery. As such, the Nuggets will have the seventh selection in the upcoming draft. So then the only question truly is: Will it be a Curry or a Nene? You all know Stephen Curry. The NBA’s...

BREAKING: Nuggets stay put in 2015 NBA Draft Lottery

Tim Connelly's barely been on the job for two years, but he's already made enough moves within that span to give an idea as to his managerial acumen. There were bad moves – the JJ Hickson, Nate Robinson and Kenneth Faried signings – but also some pretty good ones, like his draft night trade that landed Jusuf Nurkic and Gary Harris.So what do all of these moves tell us about Connelly...

Draft lottery will impact Denver Nuggets' coaching search

If you're surprised that the Denver Nuggets haven't hired a head coach yet, don't be. For one, the season still isn't over, and some of the assistant coaches the Nuggets might want to interview, such as Alvin Gentry, are still with teams in the playoffs. Another reason, though, is because of the draft lottery. As Andrew Feinstein of Denver Stiffs says:"If the Nuggets luck into picks...

Ty Lawson commits another social media gaffe

  If Ty Lawson’s goal is to get traded, he’s doing an excellent job of giving the Nuggets incentive to do so. If his goal is to get fined by the NBA, he’s doing an even better job. Early Sunday morning Lawson introduced the world to yet another incriminating social-media snippet when he posted the video below to his Facebook timeline: Lawson also reportedly published an...

Denver Nuggets: The Perfect Nuggets Offseason

  (Source: Doug Pensinger/Getty Images North America) By Ciaran Mills: Staff Writer at Hoopstuff… The Western Conference is always competitive, that is as close to a guarantee as you can get in the NBA. However, instead of bouncing back after a poor 2013-14 campaign, the Denver Nuggets sank even lower in the standings, collecting just 30 wins all year. The season was fraught...

Denver Nuggets: Preparing for the Lottery

The NBA draft lottery can be a very confusing thing. Ping pong balls and mathematical equations can twist peoples minds into a frenzy of numbers and odds. To make things simpler to Nuggets fans, there is a very low chance that the Nuggets will be in the top three, and will likely pick in the 7th spot. But that is all up to chance, and we won’t really know for certain until the...

Nuggets could trade PG Ty Lawson this offseason?

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports Ty Lawson has been the Denver Nuggets’ franchise point guard since he was drafted back in the 2009 NBA Draft. Unfortunately, his attitude is beginning to rub the Nuggets the wrong way and there is a very good chance that they will end up dealing him this offseason if they get the right offer for him. This news comes after the news broke that Lawson...

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...

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.

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...
