No Need for Manning

The Nuggets Should Trade Nene

The Nuggets Should Trade Nene

Nuggets owner Josh Kroenke and general manager Masai Ujiri have built an impressive roster in relatively short time. They squeezed Timofey Mozgov out of the Knicks in the Carmelo Anthony deal. And they shrewdly dealt a second-round pick to the Dallas Mavericks for Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer. Smart NBA executives carve out opportunities, patiently wait for the right time to pull the trigger and then pounce on the prize. The time has come for Kroenke and Ujiri to make their boldest move ... Full Story
