The NBA Draft is finally here. After weeks of workouts, teams will finally decide which players they’re going to tether their futures to. Some of the biggest questions include: Will the Kings really pass on Luka Doncic? What will the Mavericks do at five if DeAndre Ayton, Marvin Bagley, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Doncic are all off the board? Which…...

In Tryggvi Hlinason’s experience, there’s only one event that can cause a traffic jam in his native country of Iceland: when the men’s soccer team plays. “You should just see Iceland when we score a goal,” Hlinsason said. “You can’t even imagine the people. It’s insane. It’s insane.” Hlinason grew up in the Nordic island nation of about 330,000 people. He was…...

Improving on the defensive end of the floor is a priority for the Nuggets this offseason. In the last four years, they’ve never finished better than 24th in defensive efficiency. They’re hoping to snap a five-season playoff drought by going from sieves to serviceable. On Wednesday, Denver got an up-close look at a player who could conceivably help them do…...

The Denver Nuggets unveiled new uniforms Wednesday. When the black curtains covering the mannequins finally came off during halftime of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, the group gathered at Dairy Block in LoDo got a look at some fresh colors and familiar numbers: 14, 27 and 15. It was no coincidence that the Nuggets’ rebranding effort featured jerseys belonging…...

When Denver is at its best, the ball is in the big Serbian’s hands as he makes decisions based on what the whirl of bodies looks like around him. That approach has paid off with two consecutive finishes as a top-six offense. It also helps explain why the Nuggets felt…...

Things were going great.…...

Keita Bates-Diop’s arms seem to go on forever. They nearly reach his knees is he’s standing still with them tucked to his sides. When he’s out on the court, those long limbs help him disrupt opponents from distances that seem difficult to comprehend. “He actually deflected a ball that I didn’t think he could get today,” said Colorado’s George King,…...

DENVER — Kyle Freeland was a half-step late. The second-year lefty already had a five-run cushion to work with and was cruising through the San Francisco Giants’ lineup when he poked a pitch toward second baseman Kelby Tomlinson in the fifth.

DENVER — The Colorado Rockies will have to get by without one of the most dominant relievers in baseball for at least the next week and a half. Right-hander Adam Ottavino, who’s allowed three runs in 28 1/3 innings of work this season, was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain, the team announced Monday. Colorado…...
