In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, beat writer Mike Singer and deputy sports editor Matt Schubert reconvene with the NBA draft just days away. Among the topics discussed:
- It’s been less than a month since Calvin Booth took over as the top decision-maker in the Nuggets front office, and he already has one trade under his belt: JaMychal Green and a future first-round pick to OKC for this year’s 30th overall pick and two future second-rounders. What does this say about how aggressive the franchise plans to be this offseason?
- With the Nuggets now holding the 21st and 30th overall selections in the first round, who sort of players might they choose to target if they hold on to one or both picks? What are the chances they trade up in the first round?
- There’s been talk of the Nuggets potentially trading one of their point guards in order to add depth and improve defense on the wing. Who would be the guard most likely to get moved: Monte Morris or Bones Hyland?
- Looking ahead to the 2022-23 season in the wake of the Golden State Warriors’ championship run, where would a healthy Nuggets team land among the Western Conference contenders?
