Denver Nuggets

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

    Jun 27, 2011, 5:15 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 27, 2011, 8:51 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 26, 2011, 7:30 PM EST

    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…

    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…

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

    Jun 17, 2011, 6:00 PM EST

    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…

  6. Nuggets “optimistic” about Nene extension

    Jun 8, 2011, 6:02 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 8, 2011, 2:41 PM EST

    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…

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

    May 29, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    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,…

  10. Nene likely to opt out of deal with Nuggets, test market

    May 3, 2011, 1:02 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Whenever the NBA gets around to having a free agent signing period after the lockout — an intense, condensed free agent signing period — Nene might make a lot of money. He might be the biggest name on the board. That is, if he opts out of the $11.6 million he would get next year.…

  11. Free agent Kenyon Martin likes Denver but likes winning more

    Apr 28, 2011, 9:26 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    Kenyon Martin is about to be a free agent at age 33. A guy who has had his big contract and is set financially (or at least should be). As a rookie he was on a Nets team that went all the way to the NBA finals and has never been that far again. That…

  12. The Knicks would love to get Wilson Chandler back, if they can

    Apr 27, 2011, 2:24 PM EST

    WChandler_Hinrich

    The Knicks have a lot of post-season roster filling out to do… once they get the whole Donnie Walsh/Mike D’Antoni situation straightened out. And the Chauncey Billups situation. At least there are deadlines on those. But when they do get all that figured out, and when the lockout is over and they can get around…

  13. NBA Playoffs: Doom, thy name is Thunder

    Apr 25, 2011, 6:21 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    Well, that was fun while it lasted. It was nice to think Thunder-Nuggets was going to be an all-out clash of the titans. With thunder and lightning and demons and sorcery and the whole shebang. Instead, we get the Thunder, out-executing the Nuggets when it matters and where it matters in every game and a team…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Thunder nearly blow lead vs. Nuggets, take 3-0 lead, or did they?

    Apr 24, 2011, 1:52 AM EST

    hardenfoul2

    So this should go over well in Denver. Let’s start with the controversy. Here’s the final play in Denver in the Thunder’s win over the Nuggets. You decide. Did Harden get him on the arm? Did he go straight up? That’s about as close as it gets. Nothing will change the result, however. Thunder win,…

  15. NBA Playoffs: Denver tries to rediscover itself in Game 3 versus Thunder

    Apr 23, 2011, 6:09 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    The Nuggets are coming apart. They were wiped off the floor in Game 2 of a series they were supposed to be competitive in. J.R. Smith started saying J.R Smith things and now there’s a question of whether all that momentum of Game 1 was a figment of their imagination, or some fantasy concocted by…

  16. Frustrated J.R. Smith says he likely wont re-sign with Nuggets

    Apr 21, 2011, 5:20 PM EST

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    They are frustrated in Denver. They have not been able to solve the Oklahoma City Thunder puzzle and are now down 2-0 in their first round playoff series. J.R. Smith’s frustration boiled over Thursday, to the point he says he may choose not to re-sign with the Nuggets this summer, he told Benjamin Hochman at…

  17. Video: Russell Westbrook on spin cycle against Denver defense

    Apr 21, 2011, 9:14 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    Russell Westbrook slowed down some in Game 2 against Denver, he only had 21 points. Still he was a pretty big part of the Thunder going up 2-0 in their first-round series and the Nuggets still do not have a real good option for slowing him down. Especially when he can pretty much spin and…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Can Nuggets slow down Thunder stars?

    Apr 20, 2011, 7:27 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    The Denver Nuggets are a really good team. In the classic sense of team. They play good team defense. They move the ball on offense. They are well coached. They play hard. They play smart. And all that does not stop a Kevin Durant or a Russell Westbrook. Three times in the last month the…

  19. Nuggets Martin not down with defensive plan on Durant

    Apr 19, 2011, 10:42 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Phoenix Suns

    When was the last time you heard a player call out his own coach’s playoff defensive strategy? Meet Kenyon Martin. He watched Kevin Durant drop 41 on the Nuggets in Game 1 of the playoffs, hitting 13-of-22 shots and just dropping it in from everywhere on the court (he was 6-of-10 from the midrange and…

  20. NBA admits officials blew it, but that won’t help Denver now

    Apr 18, 2011, 4:28 PM EST

    George Karl

    One day after a Kendrick Perkins tip in ended up being a key part of Oklahoma City’s win over Denver, the league has admitted the referees blew it. Never should have counted. I’m sure that makes George Karl feel so much better. You can see the video here, but let us set the stage: The…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Thunder barely outgun Nuggets

    Apr 18, 2011, 4:01 AM EST

    nuggetsthunder1

    In a weekend full of high intensity, close games full of excitement, it was only fitting that the Oklahoma City Thunder and Denver Nuggets provided one last fireworks show. The game was the equivalent of some sort of bizarre video game. You have expected a mythical creature to burst through the floor and battle the…

    Oklahoma City Thunder Center Kendrick Perkins (5) And Denver Nuggets Center Nene (31) From Brazil Go Toe To Toe

    Kevin Perkins was supposed to bring more than just defense and rebounding to Oklahoma City, he was supposed to bring some snarl. Call it attitude or swagger or whatever you want, he was supposed to bring a little of that “it” championship teams have to the Thunder. The Nuggets have a word for it —…

  24. Don’t ask J.R. Smith about his minutes-played bonus

    Apr 10, 2011, 1:46 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    J. R. Smith’s got to be pretty happy with his season overall. He went from trade bait to a key contributor on one of the hottest teams in the league. He’s considered a leader on a relatively young team, and may be the X-factor that could help Denver to a first-round upset. But he’s still…

  25. Ty Lawson drops a dime… of 3-pointers

    Apr 10, 2011, 9:30 AM EST

    Lawson_Ty

    Ty Lawson was a name that was talked about as a “future asset” for the Nuggets during the Melo trade stuff. He could be pretty good as a starter, was the thought. He made losing Billups acceptable. And while Lawson has shown that he’s worthy of being a piece of the puzzle, he hadn’t had…
