The Denver Nuggets narrowly missed the 2017 NBA Playoffs last season, finishing at a respectable 40-42. They will have their hands full once again in the competitive Western Conference, but are slowly building what appears to be a solid young core. Emmanuel Mudiay and Gary Harris both showed massive promise at times throughout the last two years, and are likely a big part of the future of basketball in the Mile High city. Nikola Jokic looks to be another key piece of this Nuggets franchise, as he turned heads his rookie season with a his shot-blocking and playmaking ability. Kentucky's Jamal Murray will look to improve from his rookie season with his speed and shooting ability. Rounding out the current lineup is the Manimal himself, Kenneth Faried, who always is a threat to score down low and control the boards, with 11.9 PPG and 8.5 RPG career averages.
The Nuggets made some moves in the 2017 NBA Draft, trading down from the 13th pick to acquire forward Trey Lyles and the 24th pick. They used this pick to select forward Tyler Lydon out of Syracuse. The 6'9" sophomore looks to be the perfect complement to Jokic, as he can protect the rim with his height and spread the floor. Lydon also has 3-point upside, which is becoming crucial in the league; he shot 39.2 percent from deep last season.
