Adam Mares: Gary Harris is currently the 2nd oldest player on Denver’s roster. Jokic is 3rd. Hampton 19 Nnaji 19 Bol 21 Porter 22 Cancar 23 Murray 23 Dozier 24 Keita 24 Monte 25 Jokic 25 Harris 26 Barton 29 Jerami Grant 26 (projected)
Mike Singer: My gut tells me the Nuggets leave no stone unturned this offseason. There was chatter at the deadline around Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday, and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if those discussions get revisited. Holiday has one year left on his contract before he can become a free agent, so the Nuggets would need to assess whether they think he could be a long-term play or if they’re comfortable going for it next season. I think Gary Harris and/or Will Barton could absolutely be used in a trade to land a player like that, along with at least one or two first-round picks. The Nuggets have No. 22 (via Houston) this upcoming draft.
Storyline: Jrue Holiday Trade?
Given Gary Harris’ struggles the last two seasons and Will Barton’s struggle last postseason, do you see the Nuggets trading one or both of them in order to upgrade the shooting guard spot? — Ryan J, Denver. Mike Singer: I think moving on from Harris and/or Barton is a real possibility this offseason. If I had to guess, I’d think Harris might be the more likely one. Two seasons ago, Harris was a borderline All-Star. Injuries hampered his availability and his confidence has been shaky since then. One could argue he’d benefit from a change of scenery. It would be a gut-wrenching move for Tim Connelly, since Harris is one of the staples of the locker room.
