If I ran the nuggets for opening day..

I would make some moves..These moves I believe would give us, the fans a little bit of sanity. We have a big hole in our lineup, and a surplus in another. In this im speaking about the 2 guard and the power forward position. Not to mention we have 3 point guards. I think our best play would be to go after trevor ariza of the wizards using the expiring contracts of andre miller and one of our power forwards and yes, fournier. As good of flashes that he showed last season, fournier was a george karl type of player and of any of the young players we have waiting for playing time, he seems like the most intriguing to a trade partner. Why washington does it: they are trying to trade ariza and his expiring contract. They get miller who is a smart veteran guard for a young athletic team, fournier is a playmaker off the bench and some insurance off the bench at pf. In comes ariza. While gallo recovers we get another versatile guard/sf to help fill that position with experience. Not to mention his defense isnt bad. I would opt to start wilson at the 2 (when gallo returns) and have trevor come off the bench. Wilson is a better defender, is athletic enough to drive the basket and is a. 3 point threat. In other words, he is the closest thing to iggy as. . we have now. He is kind of like thabo but better offensively. Then with the our starting lineup would be ty/chandler/gallo/ hickson/mcgee. That would make our bench nate/foye/ariza/faried/mozzy. That is a strong 10 man rotation with huge energy off the bench. Hickson gets the nod to start because he opens up the middle with his shooting abilities. Hickson and mcgee work better than faried and mcgee I believe. Off the bench is pure energy. Trevors defense can pick up the slack, foye can hit the 3 and handle the ball, nate can shoot. Mozz can clog the middle and faried can get people on their feet. This would be my ideal lineup for next season. I fhink it would give us a chance to surprise people just like we seem to every year. I look forward to seeing what this team does, Lets go NUGGETS.
