Tim Connelly Rumors

The Nuggets approach this offseason with fewer sizable holes to fill, but that doesn’t make these next few months any less important for a franchise that will soon no longer be able to hang its hat on year-over-year improvement or the promise of a rising roster. The gauntlet has been thrown down. And the nuanced work of finding out how to improve Denver’s roster, with more constraints than ever before, has already begun. “How many times can you be the bridesmaid?” Connelly said. “All of us are, quite frankly, sick at this time of the year of having a press conference.”
Jared Jeffries, the former Nuggets scouting director and ex-Knicks forward, told The Post that Emmanuel Mudiay desperately needed out of Denver before his entire career was shot. “I know how tough it was for [general manager] Tim [Connelly] and [owner] Josh [Kroenke] to let him go,’’ Jeffries told The Post in a phone interview. “They did the right thing for the kid. They could’ve held on to him to the point of no return and ruin his career. It’s really good the Knicks trusted what they believed at draft time and got him for a discount. If he’s on top of the world and playing great, you’re not going to get him for that.”
