With the Nuggets, Karnisovas has helped construct a roster of players who combine a specific physical profile, versatile skill set and intangibles such as drive and selflessness. He continues to relish the bonds he’s built in a job he estimates is 80 percent human interaction. And, naturally, Denver’s current group is filled with international flavor. Point guard Jamal Murray and reserve forward Trey Lyles were born in Canada. Two-way wing Torrey Craig was discovered playing professionally in Australia. And the Serbian Nikola Jokic has blossomed from a relatively unknown second-round pick into one of the most versatile big men in the game. “Arturas was the one who was wanting it more for me to come here, so it’s kind of cool,” Jokic said. “He’s European, and he knows how European basketball (works). He played with some Serbian players. He knows our mentality. Of course he can help me a lot, just adapting to the basketball (in the NBA).”

The belief is that Stauskas, also unavailable this summer, was unhappy with his usage at the FIBA Americas tournament in 2015 as well. […] They’ll miss Wiggins, to be sure, but they’re confident they have enough talent to compete without him.

Richard Jefferson turned the conversation toward the Beehive State. “So,” Jefferson said, “you got drafted by Utah? Then you …” “Unfortunately,” said Lyles, interrupting him. “Let’s talk about why you didn’t want to go to Utah,” Jefferson said after the 12th pick of the 2015 draft mentioned that he would’ve preferred to be drafted by Denver. “I don’t know,” Lyles said. “I just didn’t like it.”
Jefferson: “I liked playing in Utah. I really did.” Lyles: “Who was your coach then?” Jefferson: “I had Tyrone Corbin.” Lyles, grumbling: “So y’all didn’t practice? Y’all didn’t do nothing, yeah. See, we had practice every day (under Quin Snyder). I thought I was in Kentucky again.” Jefferson, sarcastically: “You had practice every day? Oh, sorry for making you work hard. Sorry. What’s wrong with working hard, Trey?” Lyles: “I didn’t say nothing about working hard. Three-hour practices? C’mon now.”
Lyles refused to say anything nice about Utah. “It’s very similar to Denver,” Jefferson said. “It’s not similar to Denver,” Lyles rebutted. “If you’d shut up and let me talk,” Jefferson countered, jokingly. “You don’t have to say (bleep) and be all rude,” Lyles responded. “It’s sunny all the time in Utah,” Jefferson said. Lyles: “Hmmmm.” “The fans are really, really good.” “Hmmmm.”
