Not much news to report on the Denver Nuggets front, perhaps a possible trade for Philadelphia 76ers forward/center Marreese Speights if Nene isn’t re-signed, reported by David Aldridge. The team opened training camp Friday (Dec. 9) evening and still have roster spots available. The Milwaukee Bucks matched the Nuggets offer on forward Luc Mbah a Moute, Nene is still on the market along with Arron Afflalo, and in a bizarre move – the Lakers gifted Lamar Odom to the Dallas Mavericks. Yes, the same Mavericks who swept the Lakers in the playoffs last season.
