Contrary to rumors saying otherwise, Nuggets rookie point guard Emmanuel Mudiay said he did not tell anyone he was happy the Knicks did not draft him back in June. “It’s not true, I didn’t say that,” Mudiay said. “But, I think one time someone asked me, ‘How would you like to play in the triangle offense?’ I said ‘I don’t know how I would fit in that system,’ and I think that’s when they ran with it. “So, I mean, the Knicks took their choice, they took (Kristaps) Porzingis and I wish him the best. But I can care less about the Knicks right now because that’s not who I’m playing for. I’ve just got to focus on who my team is, and that’s the Denver Nuggets.”

Veteran point guard Jameer Nelson already is a mentor and friend. Name a player with years in the league, and Mudiay is more than ready to learn from him. His humble attitude in a red-hot spotlight has impressed his new teammates. Mudiay has been quick to deflect anything that resembles putting himself above the team. “I’m just trying to learn from the old heads. Everything that they can feed off, I’m going to just take it in,” Mudiay said. “That’s just what I’m going to do because they’re going to help me be me, if that makes sense. That’s how I look at it.”
