Tim Connelly Rumors
Denver Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly has reached agreement on a multi-year contract extension, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Connelly and his staff have earned the confidence of Denver president Josh Kroenke as they work together on reshaping the franchise’s roster and direction under first-year coach Michael Malone.
Ty Lawson: Connelly, Kroenke are “bad owners and GM’s”. Former Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson’s urge to reply to people on Instagram is again rearing it’s ugly head, this time it’s a direct swipe at the Nuggets owner and general manager
According to Connelly, if the Nuggets are to be relevant that will be up that young talent. “To be relevant we need young guys like Mudiay, Harris, Nurkic and Lauvergne to become consistent, valuable rotation players.”
Malone said he had input on the deal, acknowledging that he continues to work closely with Connelly, (assistant general manager) Arturas Karnisovas and (president) Josh Kroenke. “We’re a team. There’s no separation between church and state,” Malone said. “We’re together, we’re one, we communicate, and I think that’s so important. But at the end of the day, Tim’s job as GM is to make those decisions, obviously with the blessing of Josh Kroenke. They asked my opinion, I gave it, I tell him what I feel and believe in, and then whatever decision they make I roll with it.”
