New, comments

Just what exactly happened on draft night

We’re still recovering from the draft but the crew got together to try and make sense of it all. We get into what we think went wrong for the Denver Nuggets last Thursday and what we can realistically expect out of Trey Lyles and Tyler Lydon. Next we get into trades and trade rumors, talking about Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves and the rumored Kevin Love deal between Denver, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Indiana Pacers. Finally, we look ahead to free agency and who might be some of the Nuggets top targets.
