New, comments

Denver Nuggets General Manager Tim Connelly speaks to Jeff Morton of Denver Stiffs and CSG Podcast after the Nuggets 2016 NBA Draft picks introductory press conference. He addresses his thinking as he drafted each, and what part positional versatility played. Also he speaks about the leadership with Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari.

Tim Connelly spoke to me after the Nuggets 2016 Draft pick introductory press conference at Pepsi Center today. I appreciate the time he gave me when everyone wanted to speak with him, and he did not disappoint.

Points addressed today:

1. How did positional versatility play into his thinking when the Nuggets went into the draft? The Nuggets came in with some needs, but there are those who say that the team overloaded on specific picks, particularly shooting guard. Connelly speaks about what they were looking for and what they need in today's NBA.

2. Jamal Murray and his desire to be seen as a point guard? Connelly spoke about what Jamal Murray sees himself as, and what the Nuggets themselves see him as.

3. Juancho Hernangomez, will he come over? This was more ambiguous. I get the feeling we won't know the answer until after summer league

4. The status of Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari and their roles in the organization as it stands now? Fascinating answer from Tim Connelly about the two small forwards and their versatility.

5. What he's watching on Netflix.

Hope you enjoy the video.
