After picking up Zeke Nnaji’s fourth year team option, the Denver Nuggets continued their bookkeeping by also picking up Bones Hyland’s third year team option according to a source. Now, the Nuggets will only have four potential free agents heading into next season. Mike Singer of the Denver Post was first on the report. Few players have impressed the Nuggets front office, coaching staff, and his fellow teammates like Hyland has. He has been in Denver for a lot of the offseason and has spent seemingly every waking minute either working on his game, building up his body or taking his dog Tressi into local Denver neighborhoods to connect with the community. During many of the games played at the Nuggets’ facilities, Hyland has been the brightest star on the court. Hyland’s growth over his rookie year gave the Nuggets’ brass the confidence needed to trade away Monte Morris and Will Barton III to the Washington Wizards for a three-point shooting point-of-attack defender in Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to bolster their horrid perimeter defense from last season.

Golden State will enter the playoffs as the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference, facing off against the No. 6 seed Denver Nuggets at Chase Center on Saturday night.

Curry spoke to reporters on Thursday, where he discussed the lowered expectations and what the team needs to focus on in order to advance to the next round.
