“There were so many different things (going on Tuesday night), but I definitely reached out,” Malone said in his first public comments since the blockbuster deal. “We’ve been communicating with each other. I just sent all three of those guys a message for their first games tonight as Minnesota Timberwolves against the Clippers. “And that’s the only thing I feel good about it,” Malone continued. “Change is inevitable in the NBA. Players come, players go. Malik and Juancho were here for four years, Jarred for two. Everybody’s leaving on positive terms. I’m happy for those guys. Those guys are going to get opportunities in Minnesota that they deserve.”
But to your point, trading a guy like Juancho Hernangomez would take a toll on the locker room. He’s the epitome of a glue guy that everyone loves. I think that’s part of the conversation Denver’s front office is having. It’s hard to recreate chemistry, and Hernangomez is close with Nikola Jokic. As I’ve advocated, I also think it might be in his best basketball interest to get a fresh start. However, if injuries keep piling up, I could see them hanging up the phones.
The Nuggets has been open to discussing deals around young talents Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez, but have asked for a high value ahead of the February trade deadline, according to sources. Rival team executives in Las Vegas said they expect both could be moved in order for Denver to receive value prior to restricted free agency. Beasley and Hernangomez are expected to command lucrative deals in free agency, meaning the Nuggets risk losing them in July.
Storyline: Juan Hernangomez Trade?
Monday’s 4 p.m. deadline for rookie scale extensions came and went, and neither fourth-year Nuggets Malik Beasley or Juancho Hernangomez had a new deal. That means both will enter next summer as restricted free agents, where the Nuggets still have the chance to match any offer sheets that either player receives from an opposing team.

No extension for Beasley, Hernangomez

Paul Millsap, Mason Plumlee and Torrey Craig are all on expiring deals. Jerami Grant has a $9.3 million player option awaiting him at the end of the season. And Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez are a few weeks away from entering the season without contract extensions, which would trigger restricted free agency for both next summer. That’s a whole lot of core contributors with murky futures past 2019-20 — with Hernangomez’s among the fuzziest. Asked at Monday’s media day what outcome he would prefer, the 24-year-old Spaniard said he hopes to stay in Denver. “This is my home,” Hernangomez said. “We are in a good way to do something great. I want to be a big part of it.”
Harrison Wind: Will Barton hasn’t been a full participant at training camp yet. He’s dealing with an injury that’s unrelated to last year’s hip/groin but hasn’t been doing full contact drills. Michael Malone said Torrey Craig/Juancho Hernangomez have been getting runs with the first unit.

Extension coming for Beasley, Hernangomez?

The respective cases of Beasley and Hernangomez are far more interesting, if only because there’s something to debate. The Nuggets have until Oct. 21 to agree to early extensions. If they don’t, they’ll likely become restricted free agents next summer. Theoretically, interested teams could wage a bidding war with the Nuggets and drive the price up. Denver wants to get a deal done with both players before the deadline, a league source said, rather than risk that scenario with two valuable young players.

Despite a slow start and a bad shooting night, Spain managed to get a 73-65 win over Iran in Group C of FIBA World Cup. Spain won all three of its games so far and stayed at the top of the group while Iran lost all three and finished last. Puerto Rico (2-1) got the better of Tunisia (1-2) earlier today and advanced further. Marc Gasol led the winning side with 16 points while Victor Claver and Juancho Hernangomez added 11 each. The latter also grabbed ten rebounds for a double-double.
Storyline: World Cup
Russia put on a strong third quarter against Spain and recorded a convincing 74-55 win in the last prep game for the two teams in front of the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China. […] Despite the loss, Spain’s Willy Hernangomez stole the spotlight with game-high 26 points while his brother Juancho Hernangomez helped with 12 points. Marc Gasol didn’t play due to stomach problems while Rudy Fernandez rested.
The Spanish star also revealed how his teammate reacted to Nuggets‘ elimination after a rather impressive run in the season. “In the game that left us out of the playoffs, he finished with almost 20 rebounds. After the end, he started crying in the dressing room blaming himself for the elimination and that’s hard. These things show how much he loves basketball and that the best is all yet to come. He is, possibly, the best talent I have seen in my life”, Juancho told the Spanish media.
It is the first time in Doncic’s life, since he took up basketball at age 7, that he has experienced losing. One hint of how well he’s coping with it: Doncic has pulled his jersey apart in frustration after a play gone awry — twice. “It’s harder than people think,” Doncic said. “He’s a winner — he won everything in Europe,” Juancho Hernangomez of the Denver Nuggets said. “So every time he loses, he gets so mad.”
