Coach Michael Malone went to the Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic pairing at the end of last season. What were your thoughts on it and do you think we could see it again next year? Wilson Chandler: “When they put Nurkic and Jokic in, just from a feel of it on the outside looking in, I felt like down the line maybe this year and going forward that’s a great possibility, that’s a great lineup. I think it’s a good strength for our team though, If you have a bigger team you can play those guys, but if you’re getting killed you can go smaller with Gallo at the four, throw me at the four, we can try and catch up that type of way but I think that’s a great strength we have. We can mix it up a lot.”
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.”
