Adam Mares: Bol Bol?

There really aren't any great answers to this question, in part because there aren't a lot of players who qualify as being "under-the-radar." I am skeptical that Bol Bol can become an impact player as early as next season, especially now that a large portion of his first offseason will take place under unique circumstances. This summer was going to be a big one for Bol. His first summer league, his first offseason working out with the Denver Nuggets coaching staff, his first offseason where his focus can be entirely on adding strength and conditioning.

All of that is gone now. What remains is the raw talent that made Bol one of the top prospects in the world just 12 months ago. A 7'2 frame, a silky jump shot, a surprising handle and the coordination of a player that is 6 inches shorter.  Those talents will be useful the moment Bol is able to figure out the NBA game and meet the expectations of the coaching staff.

Then there is the question of what the roster might look like. A huge reduction in the league's salary cap might create a bunch of curveballs to Denver's roster construction going forward. It can be assumed that at least one of Mason Plumlee or Paul Millsap would not return next season. The plans to re-sign Jerami Grant are still intact but he will be a popular free agent this summer. Have those plans changed now that the league is in flux? There is at least a scenario in which the Nuggets need Bol to play at least some minutes next season?

With the Nuggets clinging to a seven-point lead with three minutes remaining in regulation, Brandon Ingram got to one of his sweet spots. He was around 15-feet away from the hoop, positioned on the right wing in the midrange, the same zone where he hurt the Nuggets at times during the Nuggets and Pelicans’ first two meetings of the season....

In Feb. 2015, Tim Connelly made one of the more defining trades of his Nuggets’ tenure. Midway through the 2015-16 season, Connelly dealt Arron Afflalo and Alonzo Gee to the Trail Blazers for Will Barton, Victor Claver, Thomas Robinson and a lottery protected 2016 first-round pick. The headliner of the trade at the time was Afflalo. Across 53 games, Afflalo...

When it rains it pours, and the Nuggets, who were already playing without three starters — Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, and Paul Millsap — need to find an umbrella, fast. The team announced Wednesday that backup center Mason Plumlee has been diagnosed with a right cuboid injury and his status will be reevaluated in approximately two to four weeks, meaning...

Michael Porter Jr.’s NBA education is ramping up. His latest lesson? Learning how to play with the Nuggets’ franchise cornerstone.
