Tim Connelly Rumors
Harrison Wind: Tim Connelly said he took a long walk with Zeke Nnaji through LoHi the other day to talk about his next steps. Reading the tea leaves, I’d expect a jump in Nnaji’s minutes next season: “Even though he’s 6-10, he’s going to be a heck of a 3-and-D guy,” Connelly said.
Michael Singer: Connelly said it’s been the team’s MO to sign players early regarding MPJ’s early extension. Said they’ll sit down with his representation. Intimated it was the goal to get something done earlier rather than later.
Harrison Wind: Tim Connelly says Jamal Murray’s ACL injury “won’t have too much bearing” on how the Nuggets approach the offseason. There’s no firm timetable yet on his return. “We know he’s going to be back and better than ever within the year.”
