Tim Connelly Rumors

The Denver Nuggets have re-signed free agent forward Darrell Arthur to a multi-year contract, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly announced today. Arthur, 6-9, 225, appeared in 70 games (16 starts) for Denver in 2015-16, averaging 7.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in a career-high 21.7 minutes per game. He made a career-high 45 three-pointers while shooting a career-best 38.5% from beyond the arc as well.
The first hurdle cleared was getting new Nuggets draft pick Juancho Hernangomez on the summer league roster. Check. He’ll be there. The next question is will he be on the roster in the fall. That is more complicated. “It’s the (general manager’s) decision, the coach’s decision, my family and my decision,” Hernangomez said. “So it’s our decision together.” Said Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly: “We’re going to take our time, let him get a taste of the NBA, let our coaches get a taste for his game.”
