This week’s Pickaxe Pundits show (airs every Saturday at 4PM on Nothin But Net Radio) continues the Denver Nuggets player preview series with the first group of players on the outside looking in for the rotation. We start off with perhaps the most intriguing player on the roster in Michael Porter Jr. We’ll talk about whether or not we think he plays this season and what the impact would be if he can live up to the hype. Next we break down Juancho Hernangomez and whether or not last season’s struggles were entirely health related or if there is something more going on there. Finally we discuss Malik Beasley, what he can do to get into the rotation and whether he can be more impactful on offense or defense.
