Nuggets interim coach Melvin Hunt here tonight. One of truly outstanding people you'll meet in the league. But might be too late for COY.
Before George Karl accepted the Kings job, I heard he was still in contact with many of his former Nuggets players (texting them often).
Fascinating to hear players like Kevin Garnett and David West just light the Nuggets players up. Shows a deep respect for Brian Shaw.
McGee's big contract with Nuggets, of course, was awarded by Raps GM Masai Ujiri, who had strong relationship with the 7-footer in Denver
As @Sam_Amick noted, I'm told Mike D'Antoni craves another head coaching gig. Would definitely have interest in Nuggets coaching job.
Bucks coach Jason Kidd said he had dinner with longtime friend Brian Shaw in Denver on Monday. Next morning Shaw is out as Nuggets coach.
Coaching sources say Nuggets will take a long-term view on finding replacement for B-Shaw, but there are a couple key names to watch already
"Hell of a basketball coach and a hell of a good man," Vogel says of Shaw, who was dismissed from the Nuggets earlier today.
Kings coach George Karl showed no satisfaction last week on subject of struggles of a Nuggets team that fired him. Felt bad for Stan Kroenke
Melvin Hunt will be interim coach for the Nuggets for the rest of the season, per source.
Nuggets were careening toward bottom-5 rankings in both off. & def. efficiency. Currently 24th & 25th. 28th & 26th since Feb. 1.
Reps for Nuggets, Hornets and Celtics also at Adidas Next Generation Tournament, I'm told. NBA prospects likited.
