Denver Nuggets : NBA Offseason (draft, trades, and free agency)

Denver : NBA Draft Grade C+

(20) Evan Fournier, SG; (38) Quincy Miller, SF; (50) Izzet Turkyilmaz, PF/C

The Nuggets got the best international player in the draft but this was a very week draft for international players.  I think the Nuggets reached for Fournier here. I didn’t even have him in my 1st round mock draft. Fournier is a very athletic wing player that is a little bigger and less crazy than former Nugget J.R. Smith. Miller could be a steal but it will likely take him a couple years to live up to his potential. Miller should have stayed another year in college. Turkyilmaz will probably never play in the NBA.  The Nuggets really didn’t have any big needs so not expect Fournier or Miller to make an impact this season.

Offseason/ Free Agents and Trades: Grade B+

- The Nuggets signed guard Andre Miller to a three year contract. The also resigned center JaVale McGee to a multiyear deal.

-Anthony Randolph reached a deal to play with the Nuggets.

- The Nuggets waived Chris Anderson.

- As part of the 4 team Dwight Howard trade the Nuggets received high flyer Andre Iguodala from the 76ers.  They shipped Arron Afflalo and Al Harrington to the Orlando Magic.
