Danny Leroux hosts two of the best NBA podcasts on the web, the Dunc’d On Basketball podcast with Nate Duncan, and the Real GM podcast where he has been previewing the upcoming NBA offseason by dissecting several teams in full detail. This week, he invited me on his show to go into great detail on the Nuggets timeline, free agency pursuit, draft picks, and salary cap situation. The conversation was really great and we touched on all of the major storylines that will unfold over the next couple of weeks. It’s also nice to get an outside perspective on the Nuggets roster from a smart, insightful writer like Danny.
