The Nuggets are likely to get back into the D-League business next season, according to league sources. But nothing has been decided or is imminent. Right now, the Nuggets are not affiliated with a team but can assign players to a D-League team connected to another NBA team. It has been seven years since the Nuggets last had a D-League team all to themselves. Those were the Colorado 14ers, a team that relocated to Frisco, Texas, in 2009 and became the Texas Legends. The Legends are affiliated with the Dallas Mavericks and are coached by former Nugget Eduardo Najera.
Storyline: D-League Expansion
Eduardo Najera, the former star Oklahoma player who went on to have a 12-year NBA career, is doing the Oklahoma Team Stream broadcast for tonight’s Final Four matchup. Najera is currently working for the Mavericks as a scout and also does pre-game and post-game television work on Mavericks broadcasts. When Buddy Hield was called for a charge, Najera disagreed and took time out of calling the game to very loudly yell at the officials. “Come on. He was moving. That’s a block.”

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban believes Eduardo Najera will make an excellent NBA coach. Najera is in his second season as the coach of the Texas Legends of the NBA D-league, but has aspirations of moving up to the NBA. “I think being in the D-League has given him great experience and he recognizes a lot of the elements of what it takes to be successful,” Cuban said before Friday’s Mavs-Miami Heat game. “He’s open-minded, he’s bright, he knows the game, he relates well to players, so he’s definitely got a chance to be a great NBA coach. “I know that’s in his DNA and that’s what he wants.”
