Denver Nuggets Rumors
Michael Singer: NBA’s L2M report from Nuggets-Wizards finds zero incorrect calls over the last two minutes. Bradley Beal’s delay of game half-court swat occurred with 2:19 left. Very curious if NBA would’ve weighed in on that.
Following Harden’s trade to the Nets, The Athletic reported on several teams inquiring about Tucker’s availability. As the trade deadline approaches, that interest is still alive and well around the league from contenders. Sources say teams such as Brooklyn, Utah and Denver all have sniffed around, and there certainly will be other contenders looking to improve heading into the second half of the season (both Los Angeles teams come to mind). Tucker is still a player who can help a winning team, likely more valuable to organizations with deep playoff runs in mind than a team like Houston that is transitioning.

Doncic has proven his point, at least when it comes to himself, time and again by continuously registering big numbers. For his former Real Madrid teammate and current Denver Nuggets guard Facu Campazzo, things haven’t been exactly as easy. “I understand why Luka says that because he has incredible talent, but ‘I go through a hell,’ I even pray sometimes,” Campazzo said, per Marca. “There are more spaces with the rule of three defensive seconds, but at the same time you have much more athletic players who come the help in half a second. Also they say that here players don’t defend, but they defend a lot”
Harrison Wind: Michael Malone on Greg Whittington, who he says is available tonight: “He has a high IQ. He knows how to play. He’s got good size… In Turkey, he was a player that could knock down the three ball with great efficiency. He can rebound the ball at a high level and he can defend.”
