Host Ryan Blackburn and Matt Moore of The Action Network and co-host of Locked On Nuggets discuss the Monte Morris contract extension and the landscape of the Western Conference. On Morris, they discuss:

  • The contract itself: three years, $27 million
  • How Morris fits with the rest of the guard rotation
  • What Denver’s starting lineup and bench units may look like on Saturday in Denver’s first preseason game.

On the Western Conference, the two discuss:

  • Which teams at the bottom could make some noise in the playoff picture
  • Did the Suns, Blazers, Warriors, Jazz, or Mavericks make enough improvements to pass Denver?
  • Can the Nuggets still compete with the Lakers and Clippers without Jerami Grant?
