Hearing that Porter may have to redshirt his rookie season.

That wouldn't be awful for the Nuggets. I just hope he's healthy, long-term.

Nuggets max out the joker after declining to pick up RFA option.

Hope this works out better than the Wiggins deal.

Jokic is FAR better than Wiggins. If you believe in VORP, Jokic was a top 5 player in the NBA last year (I'm not saying that he was, necessarily....... but he's REALLY good). It's a no-brainer for the Nuggets.

Jokic probably wasn't top 5 but he's a special player who has that in his future. He's 22 and averages like 21 and 11 with 7 assists per 36. He's one of the best passing bigs I've ever seen and he's still just a pup. Wiggins isn't on his level and it's perplexing to me that the Twolves maxed him. That strikes me as the type of deal that handicaps Minnesota down the road unless they can get a taker on that contract. Especially since KAT is good but lacks that special something so far in his career and Jimmy isn't getting any younger.

Hard to see LeBron winning during life of that contract because of GSW. He knows that and that’s why he’d rather play and live in LA and lose.
