    Apparently he liked a tweet referencing his hope to be traded. He is essentially getting benched in Denver. The guy has a lot of offensive talent, but has positional issues on defense. 21 years old, 7-2 with a 7-8 wingspan.

    I would not mind taking some more swings on high risk/high upside at this stage. Find new homes for these Vets of ours.

    Depends on the cost. But Bol could be diamond in the rough

    Sengun doesn’t get much time…Bol Bol would be collecting cobwebs on the bench

    Think he can play any with Sengun?

    I think Wood might be a goner at the deadline…

    That sounds like he makes the same decisions as almost every NBA player.

    I 100% agree. And, the last thing we need at this point, is for him to confuse the issue one iota in Silas's mind regarding playing time inside.

    I’ve read what some Den fans think of him

    Very poor awareness, defense, positioning, basketball IQ in general.

    The way his body moves for his height to go with his handles is nutty. Nuggets are pretty good at developing talent though, if they can’t make it work why would we?

    We had a chance to draft him. I wanted this guy here. He was Evan Mobley before the real Evan Mobley. Long, mobile and if need be might hit a occasional 3. Maybe not a superstar offensively but a solid defender. That ship has sailed though.

    Lol, you can tell that guy has never been rich. If you're rich, the LAST thing you want to do is knock up someone that's smarter than you (if you're an NBA player, that's basically everyone making similar money that isn't an athlete).

    This is why I respect Danuel House, a family man who focuses on his children and wife.... Just had a baby and works on his passion for music in his free time. A true role model.

    We need to trade for a point guard who can setup the offense, not a skinny forward like Bol.

    I can see him playing a little bit next to Sengun

    don’t wanna pay Wood, so if the Rockets decide to trade him, I’m definitely down with that decision
