In this week's episode I am joined by Chris Reichert who covers the D-League for Upside and Motor. We discuss the guys on the Denver Nuggets roster that hail from the D-League, the open roster spot heading into training camp, and the inner-workings of the D-League. Chris provides a ton of really great insight into how the Nuggets can approach their open roster spot.
