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

    Aug 11, 2011, 6:54 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 11, 2011, 8:54 AM EST

    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…

  3. Mozgov signs deal to return to Russia during lockout

    Jul 21, 2011, 10:59 AM EST

    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.

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

    Jul 19, 2011, 5:03 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 19, 2011, 12:13 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 6, 2011, 11:32 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 5, 2011, 9:29 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 30, 2011, 11:51 AM EST

    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.…

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

    Jun 28, 2011, 6:43 PM EST

    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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

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

    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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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,…

  19. 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.…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

    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…

  23. 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,…

  24. 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…

    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…
