    yeah, I'm interested to see how this plays out as well. We may just have to give him the minimum and work things out latter on.

    Morey has done it again! This team will be in the running for the 4 top spots in the West once again.

    Denver sold at the lowest. I'm surprised.

    Yes, Lawson has issues and is not a perfect player but wow...Morey proves me wrong again. After I said time after time for folks to save their Papanikolaou and/or Jones proposal, here he does it. :grin::eek:

    Not only did they sell low, they did so rather quickly/early. You think, oh, well he'll do his 30 day thing, no way they trade him now. Earliest, after the 30 day thing or closer to training camp/preseason but they sold him now. Crazy!

    I just want to thank Sergio Llull.

    I would've enjoyed seeing Llull play in the NBA but Lawson + KJ >>>> Llull. Our depth is incredible now.

    Are people really that high on KJ? Not saying he's not good. Just I haven't seen him play.

    Harden got his help in the backcourt, at least on offense. And Rusty Hardin is on the beeper.

    And we still got some cash left over to sign free agent Alan Williams, right?

    Am I missing anyone? Is this our current roster of signed players?:

    Lawson Bev
    Harden Thornton KJ
    Ariza Brewer Dekker
    DMo TJ Harrell Wood
    Howard Capela

    If that's our current roster, I think we can add Bigger Al.

    I wonder if we could trade TJ for a 2016 first round pick...

    Basically we traded for him in exchange for eating about $7 mil of salary (Papa and Pigs unguaranteed contracts). The value of everything else is negligable. The draft pick swap is little more than window dressing for the Nuggets. Dorsey and Johnson are almost negative value assets. Amazing.

    It was the alcoholism and repeat DUI offenses, folks.

    Not the genius of Morey.

    Lawson's value had bottomed out and Denver has rookie Emmanuel Mudiay to play the point.

    When Harden sits, this team is still going to be a ton of fun to watch:

    Lawson
    McDaniels
    Brewer
    TJones
    Capela

    Run run run run run
