  1. Miami to make a run at Nene in free agency… yes, it’s a longshot

    Sep 4, 2011, 9:45 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Nene has been very clear that as the most coveted free agent in this upcoming class — whenever we get into a condensed, hurried free agency period post lockout — money is not going to be his deciding factor. He wants to win. It’s not about the money. I’m sure he means it. That said,…

  2. Bargnani and Gallinari central figures in mini arms race between Italian clubs

    Sep 1, 2011, 4:36 PM EDT

    If the Pau Gasol trade proved anything it’s that the owners and operators of basketball teams are, occasionally to a fault, reactionary thinkers. Once the dominoes begin falling, some GMs just can’t help themselves, and before they know it they’ve traded a successful offensive system and a versatile two-way player for an aging Shaquille O’Neal.…

  3. Wilson Chandler will play in China

    Aug 29, 2011, 5:24 PM EDT

    Chandler_Wilson

    ESPN.com’s J.A. Adande has the story: Wilson Chandler said he has signed a contract with the Zhejiang Guangsha of the Chinese Basketball Association, a move that would essentially preclude him from participating in the 2011-12 NBA season if the lockout ends and the games begin. The Chinese Basketball Association will not allow players with existing contracts…

  4. Nuggets’ Hamilton eager to change his image

    Aug 29, 2011, 4:13 PM EDT

    Jordan Hamilton

    Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated has an article up on Nuggets rookie Jordan Hamilton, who is eager for the lockout to end so that he can begin rehabilitating his image, which may have caused him to drop out of the lottery and fall to the 26th spot in the draft: For Jordan Hamilton, the former…

  5. Nene plans to savor being a top free agent. Eventually.

    Aug 19, 2011, 1:49 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Right now, Nene is playing a lot of soccer and spending time with his first child. Good things to do with his summer. What he normally would have spent his summer doing is being courted as the top free agent big man on the market. He’s a legit center who can defend the paint and…

  6. Ty Lawson signs to play in Lithuania during lockout

    Aug 15, 2011, 3:39 PM EDT

    ty-lawson-denver-nuggets-155-million

    Ty Lawson is taking a Lithuanian vacation. Lawson will join Sonny Weems as both have signed with Zalgiris in the Lithuanian league to play during the lockout, as tweeted by DraftExpress’ Jonathan Givony (and he got it from this Lithuanian publication, which you can Google translate at your leisure). Lawson has a seven-figure deal with…

  7. Video: Gary Forbes scores 78 in pro-am game. Yes, Gary Forbes.

    Aug 15, 2011, 1:41 PM EDT

    Forbes_dunk

    Let’s be clear about this — all pro-ams are not created equal. You go to Rucker Park and drop 66 and that is something. Put up big numbers at the Drew or Goodman leagues and you are ballin’. The fact that Gary Forbes dropped 78 points at the Greater Hartford pro-am game says more about…

  8. Video: Mozgov goes Blake Griffin on someone else

    Aug 12, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    When you think of Timofey Mozgov and dunks, you tend to think of what Blake Griffin did to him last season. But Mozgov can dunk, too. Mozgov and Russia were playing Lithuania in a tuneup for EuroBasket when Mozgov ran the floor for the secondary break, got the pass in the paint and posterized some…

  9. Former NBA player, Fab Five member Jimmy King arrested

    Aug 11, 2011, 6:54 PM EDT

    jimmy-king

    Jimmy King was on top of the world at one point, a member of Michigan’s Fab Five (not as famed as Chris Webber or Jalen Rose, but part of the group). He spent two seasons in the NBA (in Toronto and Denver) plus played overseas for a few years. Now, he’s been arrested. While running…

  10. Kenyon Martin fires agent, puts house on market. He may be gone, Denver.

    Aug 11, 2011, 8:54 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Four

    Kenyon Martin is going to be one of the more sought after free agents in the mad scramble that will be post-lockout free agency (did you see how things went in the condensed NFL free agency?). He looks like a guy clearing the way for one more big kick at the can, and likely moving…

  11. Mozgov signs deal to return to Russia during lockout

    Jul 21, 2011, 10:59 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    UPDATE 10:59 am: Timofey Mozgov has confirmed that he did sign with BC Khimki to play during the lockout, speaking with the official EuroLeague site. “I am glad that everything turned out perfectly. I grew up as a player in Khimki and spent great days in here. I have a lot of friends in the team and…

  12. No Ty Lawson, NBA players can’t file for unemployment

    Jul 19, 2011, 5:03 PM EDT

    Lawson_Ty

    The couple times NBA players have made jokes about “looking for work” they have felt the backlash quickly — for most of the United States trying to fight its way out of a deep recession, that’s not funny. Which brings us to Ty Lawson, the Nuggets point guard who tweeted: i wonder if i can…

  13. ‘Melo back in Denver Nov. 16… if there’s a season

    Jul 19, 2011, 12:13 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    The official schedule release isn’t until later on Tuesday — so if you want to know when Toronto plays Minnesota you’ll have to wait — but some of the marque games are leaking out. Like when Carmelo Anthony returns to the Pepsi Center in Denver. It isn’t exactly LeBron returning to Cleveland, but it’s not…

  14. Gallinari leads today’s “who might play in Europe” post

    Jul 6, 2011, 11:32 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    With the NBA locked out the siren call of playing in Europe is getting a lot of attention. Each day we will bring you updates on who is going, thinking about going, and who is staying. • Danilo Gallinari of Denver — the Italian forward who was traded from the Knicks to the Nuggets as…

  15. Video: One reason Faried will be a fan favorite in Denver

    Jul 5, 2011, 9:29 PM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    Kenneth Faried is a guy all about hustle. He’s not making it to the NBA based on an advanced skill set, he was drafted because he is ferocious on the boards and works harder than you do. Oh, and he can dunk. What follows are a few highlights from his play at the Drew League…

  16. Nene makes it official, he will be a free agent

    Jun 30, 2011, 11:51 AM EDT

    Nene

    This has been expected for a long time, and it doesn’t mean he’s leaving Denver, but it is official now: Brazilian center Nene is opting out of the last year of his deal the Denver Post reports and will test out the free agent market. Whenever the doors to that market open after the lockout.…

  17. Felton “willing to sign a long-term deal” in Portland

    Jun 28, 2011, 6:43 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    One of the big trades on draft day involved the Portland Trail Blazers acquiring 27-year old point guard Raymond Felton, who had what was perhaps the best season of his career last season while playing for both the Knicks and the Nuggets after he was sent to Denver in the Carmelo Anthony trade. With veteran…

  18. Did Hamilton slide down draft due to Texas coach Barnes?

    Jun 27, 2011, 5:15 PM EDT

    Jordan Hamilton

    Jordan Hamilton is a lottery-level athlete who slid all the way down the NBA draft board to No. 26, where Dallas took him, traded him and he is now the property of the Denver Nuggets. Why did he fall down the board? In part because teams had concerns about his attitude. Hamilton thinks those concerns…

  19. Nene will not play for Brazil this summer, sign of free agency

    Jun 27, 2011, 8:51 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    This summer, from Argentina to Lithuania, international basketball tournaments will be taking place with berths in the 2012 London Olympics at stake. But NBA contracts and the lockout will play a role. For example, soon to be free agent Nene will not be playing for Brazil this summer, according to the Associated Press. The Brazilian…

  20. Adrian Dantley will not return to the Nuggets because of a chair

    Jun 26, 2011, 7:30 PM EDT

    George Karl

    This is a pretty stupid thing to have happen. Adrian Dantley was the coach who helped the Nuggets weather the storm when George Karl left for treatment for throat cancer. He’s a Hall of Famer who played 14 years in the NBA. And the Nuggets essentially fired him over a chair. Dantley confirmed to Chris…

  21. Ford: Kings may trade #7 pick for Felton

    Jun 21, 2011, 6:47 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    More draft rumors! This one comes courtesy of ESPN.com’s Chad Ford: The phones have been ringing off the hook today with just 48 hours to go before the NBA draft. Here are some more quick hitters on what I’m hearing. • Would the Kings be willing to send the No. 7 pick to the Nuggets…

  22. George Karl expects Danilo Gallinari to get a lot better

    Jun 17, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Danilo Gallinari, the 22-year old Italian small forward with almost limitless talent, was one of the best single players the Nuggets got in the Carmelo Anthony trade, which made their team much, much better in the short term. After being traded to the Nuggets, Gallinario showed flashes of brilliance, and went off for his only…

  23. Nuggets “optimistic” about Nene extension

    Jun 8, 2011, 6:02 PM EDT

    Nene

    According to Chris Thomasson, the Nuggets are “deep into discussions” with Nene’s agent, Dan Fegan, and are “optimistic” that they will be able to get an extension done by June 30th. Nene is owed 11.8 million dollars by the Nuggets next season, but can opt out of that contract if he so chooses, and would…

  24. Add Golden State to the list of teams that covet Nene

    Jun 8, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Whatever the new Collective Bargaining Agreement looks like, whatever the new pay structure is going to look like, Nene is going to get paid. He is the best big man on the market. It doesn’t take a genius to look at Dallas and see what a big man who can defend and rebound can do…

  25. George Karl feels pretty good about the odds of Nene returning

    May 29, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Nene

    The Denver Nuggets have a lot of offseason work to do. They have a lot of expiring contracts at key positions, they have positional logjams to sort out in advance of future draft picks they acquired in the Melo trade, and have to figure out what their identity going forward is. Top of that list,…
