  • Ramsey blog: Nuggets overpaying Gallinari, big time

    What happens to an NBA forward who struggles to rebound, partially because of effort, and shoots below 42 percent and plays for a losing team? Answer: He gets a $34 million, two-season contract extension. The Nuggets believe Danilo Gallinari can be key piece of the franchise's future revival. I see him as a key piece of the team's...

  • Klee blog: What's new, and refreshing, about Denver Nuggets

    DENVER — When the Nuggets are revived, a playoff team again, the story won’t be about those who left, or were unloaded. It will be about those who stayed, who wanted to be here. It will be about Emmanuel Mudiay, mostly, a teenage man and the centerpiece of the revival. In the midst of summer league, Mudiay asked management for a media guide,...

  • Klee blog: Detail in Denver Nuggets' Ty Lawson deal supports long-held theory

    If Josh Kroenke wasn't the son of the billionaire owner, he would have been fired as Denver Nuggets president by now. There's no other way around it. Seriously, though. How does he still have the title? It must be in the birth certificate. That's the only reason I can come up with. The latest example of his awful stewardship arrives in...

  • Nuggets trade point guard Ty Lawson

    HOUSTON — Rockets general manager Daryl Morey knows adding Ty Lawson is a risky move. He believes the possible reward is worth that risk. Lawson was acquired in a trade with the Denver Nuggets on Monday, giving the Rockets needed depth at point guard, though he is currently dealing with off-court issues. He entered a 30-day residential...

  • Mudiay shines for Nuggets in Las Vegas Summer League

    LAS VEGAS — As one of the top basketball prospects of his high school class, Emmanuel Mudiay's game was scouted and scrutinized as much as anyone while he played in Texas. And yet when the NBA's Las Vegas Summer League opened, the point guard born in the Democratic Republic of Congo remained one of the league's great mysteries. Mudiay...

  • Nuggets' Ty Lawson to enter private alcohol treatment

    DENVER — Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson won't face DUI charges in California and Colorado until completing a 30-day residential treatment program, a Denver judge ruled Friday. The troubled point guard attended a pre-trial hearing Friday in Denver, where his lawyer said Lawson enters treatment Saturday at Cliffside Malibu, a celebrity...

  • Klee blog: Don't be silly, Ty Lawson has serious value in NBA

    There's a silly rumor going around. No, not the one about Peyton Manning carrying a cane into training camp, Patrick Roy forgetting how to win hockey games, or even the one about the next Bachelor being from Colorado (he's is a Midwest transplant, like so many others.) This one's about Ty Lawson, the Nuggets point guard who has gone...

  • Prosecutors want alcohol monitoring for Nuggets' Ty Lawson

    DENVER — Colorado prosecutors want Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson to use an alcohol monitoring device after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence for a second time this year. Lawson was arrested in Los Angeles on Tuesday and is scheduled to stand trial in a Denver DUI case next month. After his January arrest in...

  • Ramsey blog: Will Lawson's recklessness end his days with Denver Nuggets?

    How does Ty Lawson respond to the considerable challenge of Emmanuel Mudiay? According to TMZ, Lawson gets himself arrested in Los Angeles for suspicion of drunk driving. This was early Tuesday morning. You might remember Lawson was arrested in January on suspicion of drunk driving in Denver. He also was clocked at 61 in a 35 mph zone....

  • Klee: Believe it or not, there's hope for Denver Nuggets

    DENVER — Step back for a clear view, and it's quite amazing how far and how fast the Denver Nuggets have fallen. I tried to think of a comparable tumble, but Tiger Woods still has 14 majors and perfect teeth. From the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference (would you take that now?) to the civic embarrassment they've become - in a span of...

  • Denver Nuggets player Ty Lawson arrested on DUI allegations

    LOS ANGELES — Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson has been arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol — his second DUI arrest this year. California Highway Patrol Officer Jennifer Cassidy says Lawson was driving at a high rate of speed before being pulled over around 2 a.m. Tuesday on state Route 101 in...

  • 4 O'Clock Shadow: NBA moving and shaking keeps Ty Lawson in Colorado

    Outside a nightclub in Chicago several years ago, Deron Williams challenged a friend to a 50-yard dash to see who was faster. Just steps into the race, the All-Star point guard pulled up lame, grabbing his right hamstring. The rest of us freaked; weeks before Williams was supposed to win an Olympic gold medal with USA Basketball,...

  • Rookie Emmanuel Mudiay turning heads in Nuggets practice

    DENVER — One practice in and Denver Nuggets point guard Emmanuel Mudiay is already talking titles. An NBA Summer League crown, anyway. Got to love rookies. New coach Michael Malone certainly does — especially this one. Mudiay, the seventh overall pick in the draft last month, already is forming quite a bond with his coach, who flat-out told...

  • 4 O'Clock Shadow: Overpaying a superstar impossible in today's NBA

    Anthony Davis is coming. In two years, maybe three, the Pelicans' wonder/basketball alien/power forward will be the best player in the NBA. New Orleans will win one NBA title, maybe a couple more, and no one will look back on his contract extension as a reach. His price? $145 million. And it's a steal. In...

  • Klee: Hall of Famer Larry Brown: Emmanuel Mudiay 'perfect' for Denver Nuggets

    DENVER - He played for the Denver Rockets of the ABA and coached the Nuggets into the NBA. He lived in Boulder a few years ago and cites locals Bill Ficke, Tad Boyle, Larry Eustachy and Chauncey Billups among his inner circle. You know his story. Larry Brown is a New Yorker blessed with Colorado blood. And with point guard Emmanuel Mudiay -...

  • Klee blog: Denver Nuggets should try to make Lawson/Mudiay work together

    If you take anything from my column on Larry Brown and Emmanuel Mudiay, maybe it should be this: "Ty (Lawson) can score and make shots and Emmanuel can (defend) bigger guards," Brown said of the Nuggets' two point guards. "I think that would be a pretty special backcourt." Leave it to a basketball coach of 40-plus years to make the...

  • Nuggets pick Mudiay ready to step into lineup

    DENVER — Emmanuel Mudiay says he's ready to step into the Denver Nuggets lineup and help lead the franchise to its first championship. It's not the biggest challenge the 19-year-old has faced in his young life, but it's one that he's ready to tackle. "I grew up with pressure my whole life," he said. "It's basketball, I'm going to have fun...

  • Klee: Get to know Emmanuel Mudiay, Denver Nuggets' draft steal

    DENVER - His created-by-God-to-play-basketball physique screams "ready now." Emmanuel Mudiay is thick, like an NFL tailback, if NFL tailbacks were 6-foot-5. He's 210 pounds but not a ferocious athlete, not a Westbrook-type, even if wayward scouting reports portray him that way. But he can go. He loves to go. "A less-explosive,...

  • Nuggets select guard Emmanuel Mudiay in first round of NBA Draft

    DENVER (AP) — The Denver Nuggets selected guard Emmanuel Mudiay with the seventh overall pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night.
