Foye, entering his ninth NBA season, said he and Afflalo have spoken on the phone a couple of times since Afflalo was acquired in a draft-day trade with the Orlando Magic. Both players are tireless workers who likely will be among the last players on the court after practice on most days. “We’re excited to have him with the group,” Foye said. “Everybody knows it’s about working hard, sacrificing and understanding what it takes to get to where we want to go. Everything’s all good. We just want to win.” NBA.com

Faried appears to be in good position to make the 12-man squad that will represent the United States at the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain. While not taking anything for granted, he is looking forward to the next step in the journey. “My anticipation level is high,” he said. “I’m excited about this whole experience. I’m excited to wake up every day and play the game I love, especially at this level. I’m very anxious to go out there and win this gold and come back home and say I’m one of the lucky few that was able to play for a gold medal for this team.” Self-confidence has never been a problem for Faried, who was selected by the Nuggets 22nd overall in the 2011 NBA Draft. It also has served him well while training under Hall of Fame coach Krzyzewski. “Coach said to be yourself. Don’t try to be someone you’re not,” Faried said. NBA.com

It is one part of a big summer for Faried, one in which his representation and the Nuggets have had ongoing contract-extension talks, and one in which he's adding to his offensive repertoire in order to come back next season with the same effectiveness with which he finished the 2013-14 season. He averaged a career-high 13.7 points and 8.6 rebounds while shooting 54.5 percent from the field — ranking ninth in the NBA — in 2013-14. After the all-star break, Faried averaged a team-high 18.8 points, 10.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals. Denver Post

"I'm not worried about it," said Faried, who is entering the last season of his rookie-scale contract. "I'm just worried about USA Basketball right now. That's the only thing I'm focused on right now. The extension, it will come when it comes. God has a plan. Whatever his plan is, he's going to see it through." Denver Post

During his week with USA Basketball in Las Vegas, Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried did what he does best. Rebound, run and play with relentless energy. He will soon find out whether it was enough to continue on the road to the FIBA World Cup in Spain. “I’m very high on my chances,” Faried said Monday. “I believe I left a lasting impression for the coaches to like me and make me part of the team, so I can help the U.S. bring home gold this year.” NBA.com
