Zach Lowe: What are the chances from zero to a hundred that Kenneth Faried is the starting power forward on opening night? Michael Malone: [laughs] From zero to a hundred? There’s a good chance. Kenneth is a… [Lowe laughs] he has been here for a while. He’s a guy that I played him about 25 minutes a night last year, and unlike any other big man on our team he brings something to the table that none of the other guys can. He’s a tremendous athlete, he’s an elite offensive rebounder and he’s a guy you can throw the ball up to and play above the rim. (…) Kenneth is a guy that he’s proven over his NBA career to be a double-double machine, and when he’s playing at a high level, he’s one of the most dominant power forwards in the NBA.”

Michael Malone: “We were a young team last year and we got a little bit younger through the draft which we’re excited about. It’s tough to win big in the NBA when you’re this young, but we feel we have a lot of good young players and assets. And you balance that with guys like (Danilo Gallinari) and (Kenneth) Faried, Darrell Arthur. People forget but we consider Wilson Chandler a free agent signing (since he missed all of last season). This is a long-term play. This is an opportunity to show improvement, for our players to get better and we have a chance to be here for a while.”

The Nuggets are seemingly always mentioned in trade rumors, so their makeup could well change before training camp if Denver moves a player like Danilo Gallinari or Kenneth Faried with one of its guards or future picks. The Nuggets tried to move up in the first round without success, but were able to address a need by taking Murray and his all-around game to plug in next to second-year point guard Emmanuel Mudiay.
