Denver Nuggets

  1. Wilson Chandler talks about playing in China

    Sep 26, 2011, 11:50 AM EDT

    Wilson Chandler, Kobe Bryant

    The adjustments for NBA players heading to China are massive. The language, the food, the culture is all radically different. China has a high turnover rate among players for a reason. But Nuggets free agent Wilson Chandler is enjoying it, he tells the Boston Globe. Part of that is because he has an American coach…

  2. Check out Ty Lawson’s car while in Europe. Nice signature.

    Sep 21, 2011, 8:32 PM EDT

    Ty Lawson's car

    Ty Lawson is one of five Nuggets players heading overseas to play while the lockout drags on — three of which may not be coming back if there is a season. But that’s another issue. One of the perks of playing in Europe is… well, the perks. The team provides housing, a car, covers the…

  3. Kenyon Martin to become third Nugget to play in China

    Sep 21, 2011, 1:35 PM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    Kenyon Martin is about to join J.R. Smith and Wilson Chandler as key Denver Nuggets free agents that have decided to play a season in China rather than see how the lockout plays out. And that leaves the Nuggets screwed for next season. Martin’s agent Andy Miller confirmed to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post…

  4. Nuggets Danilo Gallinari to play in Italy during lockout

    Sep 20, 2011, 9:48 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    If you’re looking for a bright side Nuggets fans, at least he didn’t go to China like everyone else. And at least he has an out clause to return. Danilo Gallinari has signed to return to Olimpia Milano during the lockout, a story broken by the Italian publication La Gazzetta dello Sport, via Sportando. He…

  5. What the Nuggets should do when the lockout ends…

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

    This is the next installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Today it’s the Denver Nuggets. You can also read up on the Lakers, Timberwolves and Mavericks as we start to work our way through all 30 NBA teams.   Last Season: Well that was no fun, then it was kind of fun,…

  6. It’s official, J.R. Smith signs to play in China next season

    Sep 14, 2011, 12:18 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    What is the Chinese word for “gunner?” That word might now be J.R. Smith. The talented, athletic Denver swingman who never saw a shot he didn’t like has signed to play in China for next season, according to reports out of China via Nuibball.com as well as Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. He will be the…

  7. No, for real, all of the Nuggets are going to China

    Sep 10, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    Seriously, are the Nuggets the only team outside of the Rockets and Lakers on television in China? Is there some sort of affinity for the powder blue? What is the deal with Chinese teams going after Denver Nuggets free agents, potentially keeping them out of the NBA when it resumes this year, if it resumes…

  8. Gary Forbes unhappy with Panama national team’s resources

    Sep 8, 2011, 7:42 PM EDT

    Forbes_Gary

    In his third and final dairy entry for SLAM Online about the FIBA Americas tournament, Nuggets player Gary Forbes had some interesting things to say. Forbes played for Panama, who was 1-5 at the time of Forbes’ third diary entry, and Forbes believes that the team’s lack of resources were a major cause for their…

  9. Jordan Hamilton mistakenly thinks he can lead all rookies in scoring

    Sep 7, 2011, 8:11 AM EDT

    Jordan Hamilton

    I love Jordan Hamilton’s confidence. Not sure he’s very familiar with the coach and situation he will find himself in once the lockout ends, but love that confidence. Don’t ever lose that. The first-round draft pick out of Texas finds himself in Denver and sounds as sure of himself as ever — particularly his ability…

  10. 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,…

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

    Sep 1, 2011, 4:36 PM EDT

    GYI0064030379_crop_450x500

    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.…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. ‘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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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.…
