Michael Malone on Christian Braun: “A guy that can play for us next year.”
“I love his maturity. I love his IQ. The things I really love about him the most are his toughness and physicality. Some guys shy away from physicality, Christian embraces physicality.” – 2:56 PM

Malone said that yesterday’s 5-on-5 work from Jamal Murray was the most intense he’s played since tearing his ACL last April.

Michael Malone on Jamal Murray’s Tuesday scrimmage: “He looked mobile, agile and hostile. He looked confident. That’s the most important thing to me. I wasn’t charting his makes and misses. I was trying to see the confidence level. How was he moving, defensively…he looked good.” – 2:32 PM

Michael Malone: KCP is a “helluva addition.”
Said his addition will mean a lot less defensive stress on Aaron Gordon.
Also said now that Ish Smith is on the team, hopefully he’ll stop kicking Denver’s butt. – 1:37 PM

It didn’t matter that it was with Denver’s Summer League roster. There was Jamal Murray back in the gym, running in live action on Tuesday afternoon.
“Everyone wants to watch him play,” said Summer League coach Ryan Bowen.

Jamal Murray participated in parts of Denver’s practice/scrimmage today. Sounds like he played some live action. Matt Mitchell says he got one stop on Murray today, then Murray got him back on the next possession. – 5:19 PM

NEW for @MileHighSports
The Nuggets revamped their bench lineup this offseason, getting older and younger at the same time.
But there’s one player Michael Malone will trust above all others: Bruce Brown.
The Nuggets are making a big bet on him.

More on this storyline

According to Summer League head coach Ryan Bowen, Murray was there on his own accord and wanted to keep playing even for the portion of the practice that was open to the media. Though that didn’t happen, the reviews on Murray’s movements were all positive. His mere presence had a palpable impact on the atmosphere. “It’s huge,” Bowen said. “You got Jamal Murray playing with our Summer League guys. … Everyone wants to watch him play. The guys want to watch him play.” Bowen said Murray participated in non-contact drills Monday that immediately ratcheted up the competitiveness. “It was great to see him out there,” Bowen said. -via Denver Post / July 5, 2022
According to Michael Porter Jr.’s brother, Jontay, whose knee injuries sidelined him the past season but is back with the Nuggets’ Summer League team, Jamal Murray’s agility is coming along. “He looked great,” Porter said. “His jumper is as amazing as ever. He’s moving really well, too, especially coming from a guy who’s had ACL injuries as well.” -via Denver Post / July 5, 2022
