We’ve officially entered the dog days of the Denver Nuggets’ calendar year. It’s mid-August. It’s hot. And not much is happening with regards to the Mile High City’s lone professional basketball squad. There are, however, a small number of relevant Nuggets-related stories that have continued to percolate across the Web, which I’ll try and document on a weekly basis…...

If you want to catch a glimpse of rookie Emmanuel Mudiay and the Denver Nuggets you better live in the Rocky Mountain region, have access to NBATV, buy NBA League Pass or be satisfied with a SportsCenter highlight package. The Nuggets are one of just three teams including the Philadelphia 76ers and Detroit Pistons who will not be shown on national…...

NBA uniforms are a perpetually evolving — and sometimes devolving — fashion statement. Some are immaculate and some… not so immaculate. The Nuggets have been blessed to have some pretty awesome uniforms and logos throughout their history. The skyline series from the 80’s is often seen as the peak of not only Denver Nuggets uniform history but of NBA…...

Virtually every player whom the Nuggets struck a handshake deal with in free agency finally put ink to paper, including Darrell Arthur. With 15 players currently signed to guaranteed contracts the Nuggets will be forced to make a tough decision on what…...

According to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post, free agent Darrell Arthur is set to return to the Denver Nugget on a two-year deal. https://twitter.com/dempseypost/status/629739825021632512 The 6-9 forward averaged 6.6 points and 2.9 rebounds per game last season and is viewed as one of Denver’s best all-around defenders. Arthur joins a crowded Nuggets front court that already includes Kenneth Faried, JJ Hickson,…...

As the final buzzer sounded in Rose Hill Gym on the campus of Fordham University, Xavier Silas wondered what was next.

Three months ago in the second part of my Denver Nuggets offseason to-do list series I wrote about three team needs the Nuggets would be prudent to address this summer. The first was somehow getting rid of J.J. Hickson, which of course didn’t happen and as I pointed out in my most recent Ty Lawson trade analysis piece is…...

Ah, the Internet. It’s a funny place. It’s also a really scary place. And for the Denver Nuggets and Kostas Papanikolaou, it’s been a very unreliable place as of late. Two days ago international basketball reporter David Pick reported the Nuggets would waive Papanikolaou along with Joey Dorsey, both of whom were acquired from the Houston Rockets via the…...

Denver Nuggets will waive Kostas Papanikolaou, source said. His $4.7 million deal is non-guaranteed. —…...

Team World won the first ever Africa Game 101-97 in front of a packed Ellis Park Arena in Johannesburg, South Africa, but the the star-studded NBA rosters weren’t the biggest story from the event. Denver Nuggets’ legend Dikembe Mutombo and the Houston Rockets’ Hakeem Olajuwon checked into the game late in the first half to a thunderous ovation, both wearing throwback…...

The Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Clippers, New Orleans Pelicans, Cleveland Cavaliers and San Antonio Spurs were the top six teams who made the highest percentage of uncontested 3-pointers last season. The Denver Nuggets ranked dead last in that metric. They shot 32.5 percent on uncontested threes. Statistics like “3-pointers attempted per game,” “3-point field goal frequency” and…...

Emmanuel Mudiay put on a show in Las Vegas this past month during the Nuggets’ week-long Summer League run. His poise was sound, his demeanor years ahead of where it should be for a teenager, yet the most startling aspect of seeing Mudiay up close and personal for the first time was without question his vision and overall distribution…...

If you’ve been paying any attention to BSNDenver.com lately you’re likely well aware of my stance on the recent Ty Lawson escapade. While I firmly stand by my premise regarding the neglectful manner in which the Denver Nuggets addressed Lawson, it absolutely must be noted that aside from this catastrophe the Nuggets have had an outstanding offseason. I’d even…...

After the Denver Nuggets re-signed and re-structured the contracts of Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari I took to social media to see how those transactions were viewed across what I like to call “Basketball Twitter.” Most of what I saw were pundits wondering exactly what the Nuggets were doing and re-calling how this franchise is still stuck in the…...

Several days ago I detailed the Denver Nuggets’ botched handling of Ty Lawson in a diatribe which you can find here. The general thesis of my argument was that the Nuggets overvalued Lawson from the get-go and waited entirely too long to trade him. Though we’ve known Lawson has had intense off-court trouble for roughly the last six month,…...
