HoopsHype Jordan Hamilton rumors

August 19, 2014 Updates

But for those who are apparently so anxious to know what this means – A trade? Someone getting waived? The Raptors thumbing their noses at the rules? – take this into consideration. I was talking to someone in the gym about this yesterday and the word is this: They have no clue what they’re going to do, they just signed these guys and they don’t have to do anything until the season starts and anyone who’s getting worked up about a “next move” needs to sit back and take a deep breath.

As for Hamilton, he's out to prove he can play in the NBA. Last week, the Nuggets opted not to pick up the final year of his contract, which was to pay him in excess of $2 million, so he'll become an unrestricted free agent at season's end. Hamilton wants to ensure that he'll be on someone's NBA roster next season. That journey starts now. "It's getting my opportunity," Hamilton said, "and from now on just not look back after I get it." Hamilton has not played in either of the Nuggets' first two games. Like most of his teammates, he was up and down in the preseason as he tried to learn a new system. "It's a lot different, especially from last year," said Hamilton, 23. "Concepts and everything. It's a learning process. It's like I'm a rookie all over again. I've got to come in, I've got to fight for my spot and I've got to continue to work hard every day." Denver Post
