  • Report: Richard Jefferson signing with Nuggets

    Denver will likely waive guard Jameer Nelson to create a roster spot for Jefferson, league sources tell ESPN. It looks like Denver will ride with the younger Jamal Murray and Emmanuel Mudiay at point guard — a risky proposition. Nelson stabilized the position in the event Murray or Mudiay weren’t ready for bigger roles.

  • Nuggets retiring Fat Lever’s No. 12

    You retire the number of someone who last played for the team 27 years ago. “With what Fat Lever has meant to this team, this city and our community for the past 30-plus years, it makes perfect sense to honor him by retiring his jersey during this special season,” Kroenke stated. “He is not only one of the best Nuggets in franchise history, but a great ambassador of Denver basketball as well.

  • Why Gary Harris' extension may be the best value of 2017

    Of all the rookie extensions signed during the 2017 league year, the Denver Nuggets may have received the best value on the five-year, $84 million rookie-scale extension Gary Harris accepted Saturday. If Harris had waited to enter restricted free agency next summer, he could have bargained for much more on the open market. Last year, Allen Crabbe agreed to a four-year, $75 million offer from the Nets, which Portland matched.

  • Basket - Lakers play safe with injured rookie Ball

    - The Los Angeles Lakers opted to keep rookie point guard Lonzo Ball out of Sunday's pre-season game against the Sacramento Kings, letting him rest his sprained left ankle. Ball missed his second straight game since he was hurt on Monday when he came down on Denver Nuggets point guard Emmanuel Mudiay's foot near the end of the first half of a pre-season contest. Lakers coach Luke Walton said Ball, the second overall selection in the draft in June, had trouble with lateral movement and there was some suggestion he could miss the rest of the pre-season.
