  1. Report: Sixers tried to poach Nuggets’ GM Masai Ujiri

    Sep 21, 2012, 7:47 AM EDT

    Masai Ujiri

    There were questions about Masai Ujiri as a general manager when the Nuggets hired him. He seemed a bit of a reach, someone who hadn’t had a lot of experience and that raised a few eyebrows around the league. But Ujiri has answered every question, looked smart in the role and reshaped a roster following…

  2. Nuggets GM on Carmelo Anthony deal: “We got killed”

    Denver is not Cleveland. They got something back for their superstar. But Denver was not a winner either in having to trade away Carmelo Anthony, and their GM Masai Ujiri said as much, as the fantastic Chris Tomasson reported at Fanhouse. “We feel we got killed in the trade because we lost a couple of…

  3. Nuggets management figures out it has to trade Carmelo Anthony. Finally.

    Dec 9, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you and I figured out months ago, what Carmelo Anthony’s people have been telling the Nuggets front office privately since this summer, has finally sunk in with Denver’s decision makers. Carmelo Anthony is leaving, and you can trade him now or watch him walk for nothing next July. So Denver is going to get…

  4. Carmelo Anthony says nice things about Denver, but does that change anything?

    Denver has a good basketball team right now. We were reminded of that last night when they hung with the Lakers in a scoring fest, got good play off the bench (I could swear I saw Al Harrington on help defense) and played enough defense late to hand Los Angeles its first loss. The capacity…

  5. Nuggets shake up front office, what does that mean for ‘Melo?

    Nov 9, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    The changing of the guard continues in Denver. With Josh Kroenke — team president and incoming owner — taking a more active role in the front office since this summer there have been a number of changes. Mark Warkentien and Rex Chapman walked out the door this summer. Now Bret Bearup – a powerful advisor…

  6. In case you thought Carmelo Anthony might change his mind… nope.

    There were some in the Denver front office that held out hope once Carmelo Anthony got to Denver, once he got around George Karl and his teammates things would be different. If he just sat down with management things would change. He would smile, remember how much he loves it here and decide to sign…

  7. Someone wants to stay in Denver: George Karl would like an extension

    Oct 26, 2010, 10:19 AM EDT

    Image (1) anthony_Karl-thumb-250x181-21662.jpg for post 6222

    George Karl doesn’t care that Carmelo Anthony’s extension sits unsigned, he wants to stay in Denver. He told FanHouse he wants a multi-year deal. “I don’t like being a businessman,” Karl said in an interview Monday with FanHouse. “But, if that’s what I have to be, I will be.” “I’m going to live in Denver…

  8. Nuggets hire former Golden State GM Pete D’Alessandro as consultant

    The Nuggets have a couple of young bucks running their front office. There is Masai Ujiri, who got hired in the general manager role this summer (even though the formal title is vice president of basketball operations, he’s still a GM). But he answers to the guy with the ultimate power, soon-to-be-owner Josh Kronke, who…

  9. Carmelo Anthony isn't part of team promotional filming

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:23 AM EDT

    Whatever state of limbo it may be in, the trade talks for Carmelo Anthony are not dead. The best sign of that: Denver did not ask him to participate in any of the team’s promotional filming on media day. We all read the quotes about the upcoming season on media day, but another part of…

  10. George Karl was "surprised" the Nuggets let go Mark Warkentien

    Sep 1, 2010, 10:40 AM EDT

    Ultimately, here is what it comes down to when Carmelo Anthony looks at that three-year, $65 million extension the Denver Nuggets put on the table: Do I trust the organization? Does he trust their management? Does he trust that they can keep a winner on the court? Does he trust the new regime of Josh…

  11. New Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri says he wants to keep Anthony in Denver

    Aug 31, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Denver’s new general manager Masai Ujiri held his introductory press conference today. Guess what most of the questions were about? No, not how Modern Family could win the Emmy for best comedy when it’s not really that funny. It was about ‘Melo and trades. Here are his answers. Nothing stunning or even really new there.…

  12. Nuggets new owner dances around Carmelo Anthony question like a vet

    Aug 26, 2010, 10:55 AM EDT

    The thought of an NBA team owner intimately involved in player/personnel decisions instantly brings up thoughts of Michael Heisley. And that’s not a good thing. But Josh Kroenke — who will soon take control of the Nuggets from his father Stan — is the exception to the rule. He comes in with a basketball background.…

  13. Denver Nuggets hire Masai Ujiri as general manager

    Aug 25, 2010, 11:41 PM EDT

    It didn’t take long after David Griffin backed away for the Denver Nuggets to find their new general manager. Masai Ujiri will be hired for the position, according to the Denver Post. Ujiri was a former Nugget scout who most recently was director of international scouting for the Toronto Raptors. He will report directly to…

  14. With Stan Kroenke approved to buy NFL's Rams, son Josh will take over Nuggets

    Aug 25, 2010, 9:22 PM EDT

    In practice, Josh Kroenke was already the go to guy for the Denver Nuggets. It was he and family advisor Bret Bearup who went last weekend to talk with Carmelo Anthony about the future of the Nuggets and try to convince him to sign a three-year, $65 million extension sitting on the table. (It is…

  15. Griffin Turns Down Nuggets GM job, Denver looks elsewhere

    Aug 25, 2010, 9:17 AM EDT

    The Denver general manager job will not be going to a name you know (unless you are an NBA front office insider, and even then). Former Suns executive David Griffin turned down the job, according to Ric Bucher of ESPN. So to be clear, an unemployed guy just turned down the job. That’s not really…

  16. Another Denver contract sits unsigned, Nuggets offer David Griffin GM job but no deal

    Aug 24, 2010, 9:25 PM EDT

    What is it with nobody signing the contracts the Denver Nuggets are offering lately? The Denver Nuggets have offered Suns executive David Griffin their general managers job, but the two sides are still negotiating money, according to Sam Amick at FanHouse. A source close to the process said the holdup has everything to do with…

  17. Nuggets sit down with Carmelo Anthony to woo him, while Rockets, Clippers wait in the wings

    Aug 24, 2010, 8:48 AM EDT

    It still sits there on the table. The elephant in the room. The thing as subtle as an Oliver Stone film — three years, $65 million. Denver’s contract extension offer to Carmelo Anthony. Which he has yet to sign. Because it sits untouched trade rumors swirl. But the Nuggets don’t want to ship him off,…

  18. Denver Nuggets will not be sold, it's all in the family

    Jun 8, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    Stan Kroenke has purchased 40 percent of the St. Louis Rams and is in the process of trying to buy the rest. Which is good for the Rams because Kroenke is considered one of the best owners in sports, he already has the Nuggets and the Colorado Avalanche. Except, the NFL has a silly rule…
