  • Klee blog: DeMarcus Cousins is perfect for Nuggets (but not why you think)

    Maybe this story has legs. Maybe it's headed straight to the rumor dump. Or maybe — fingers crossed! — the Nuggets are due for a Carmelo Anthony-drops-to-3-level break, and DeMarcus Cousins is that break. The Kings are shopping their roster, according to a report from Howard Beck of Bleacher Report. The Kings are 20-35 and not making the...

  • Suns end 5-game skid with win over Nuggets

    DENVER — Brandon Knight hit two key late 3-pointers and had 19 points to help the Phoenix Suns snap a five-game losing streak with a 110-96 victory over the injury-depleted Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night. Eric Bledsoe added 18 points for the Suns, who had six players score in double figures as they ended a seven-game road skid. The Suns...

  • Ramsey: Nuggets should take caring lessons from Tom Brady

    DENVER - A long time ago, before Tom Brady became Tom Brady, he was standing in a long line with his parents at Angelo's, a mega-popular restaurant in Ann Arbor, Mich. Workers at Angelo's made sure the best Michigan athletes didn't wait in line. Those workers walked right past Brady, who never quite became a star for the Wolverines. The snub...

  • Oklahoma City Thunder rattles Denver Nuggets

    OKLAHOMA CITY - Russell Westbrook had 21 points and a career-high 17 assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Denver Nuggets 119-94 on Sunday night without Kevin Durant. Durant was out after a procedure on Sunday to replace a screw that was causing soreness in his surgically repaired right foot. The reigning NBA MVP is expected to...

  • Middleton, Henson lead Bucks to win over Nuggets

    MILWAUKEE — With their roster altered by a trade and their rhythm disrupted by the All-Star break, the Milwaukee Bucks got a jolt from a big man against Denver. Forward John Henson exposed the Nuggets in the paint to give his team a much-needed lift. Henson scored 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting, Khris Middleton had 15 points and the Bucks...

  • Nuggets overhaul roster at trade deadline

    DENVER — The Denver Nuggets have dealt often-injured center JaVale McGee, a protected 2015 first-round pick and the draft rights for Chukwudiebere Maduabum to the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday. In return, the Nuggets received the rights to Cenk Akyol, a 6-foot-6 guard from Turkey who plays in the Turkish Basketball League, along with...

  • Point guards on the move on NBA trade deadline day

    Point guards moving quickly made this trade deadline a transition game. Goran Dragic, Michael Carter-Williams, Reggie Jackson and Brandon Knight all were dealt Thursday in the final hours that trades were allowed, as a number of teams handed their keys to different drivers. Kevin Garnett also has a new address — his original NBA one. The...

  • 4 O'Clock Shadow: Nuggets deadline moves are admission of failure

    The Nuggets made two major moves on the NBA trade deadline. Grading a trade deadline in the 24 hours that follow a trade deadline is like grading the NFL draft 24 hours after the NFL draft. You, or I, have no idea. We really don't. But one thing I know for certain about the Nuggets moves: They are an admission of failure. Shipping JaVale...

  • OKC Thunder trades Colorado Springs product Reggie Jackson

    OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma City Thunder have traded guard Reggie Jackson to the Detroit Pistons. Jackson's agent, Aaron Mintz, confirmed the move Thursday. It was not immediately clear who the Thunder would get in return. Jackson helped the Thunder keep it together last season while Russell Westbrook was injured and his value skyrocketed....

  • Blog: The Nuggets and the NBA trade deadline

    The NBA trade deadline is 1 p.m. Thursday. More about that here. I'll be surprised if Arron Afflalo is still with the Nuggets when they play at Milwaukee on Friday. Afflalo has a player option for 2015-16, and he hasn't seen eye-to-eye with Brian Shaw, so I find it unlikely Afflalo would re-sign with the Nuggets. They must get something in...

  • Ty Lawson misses Nuggets' 1st practice after break

    DENVER — Point guard Ty Lawson missed the Denver Nuggets' first practice after the All-Star break and coach Brian Shaw is looking into the reason why before handing out any sort of punishment. Asked about Lawson's nonattendance, Shaw said: "Travel issues or whatever, he's not here. ... So we had to go without him." Shaw said one of the...

  • Report: Agent for Colorado Springs product Reggie Jackson asks Thunder for trade before deadline

    The agent for Oklahoma City Thunder guard and Palmer graduate Reggie Jackson has reported asked the team to trade the veteran point guard before the Thursday trade deadline, according to Yahoo Sports. From Adrian Wojnarowski: "Jackson, 24, has made it clear to the Thunder that he would be resistant to returning to the franchise should it keep...

  • Ty Lawson powers Nuggets to 106-96 win over Lakers, ending skid

    LOS ANGELES - Ty Lawson had season-highs of 32 points and 16 assists, leading Denver to a 106-96 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night that snapped the Nuggets' six-game skid. Darrell Arthur added 15 points, and Wilson Chandler and J.J. Hickson had 13 points each for the Nuggets, whose four-game road losing streak ended. Carlos...

  • Klee: Nuggets need workers, and Colorado Springs product Reggie Jackson is one

    DENVER — Reggie Jackson's pregame routine at Pepsi Center is different than when the Oklahoma City Thunder goes to the other 28 NBA cities. It takes longer, for one. His homecoming routine unfolded in its entirety on Monday. Jackson, the Palmer graduate, leaned over a folding table in the center of the visitor's locker room. He rifled through...

  • Kevin Durant scores 40, Thunder beat Nuggets

    DENVER — Kevin Durant's shots kept dropping, and it didn't seem to matter whether he was off-balance, falling away or putting the ball up in traffic. The reigning MVP scored 40 points, Russell Westbrook had 26 and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat Denver 124-114 on Monday night to hand the Nuggets their sixth loss in a row. "My teammates were...

  • Blog: CU Buffs lost a good player, but Andre Roberson made right decision

    Andre Roberson got some grief when he ditched the University of Colorado basketball program after his junior season. Not from his coach, Tad Boyle, who has taken the approach it's good for all parties when a player leaves early for the NBA draft. Not from the NBA, which, in the form of the Minnesota Timberwolves, made Roberson a first-round...

  • Klee: Fixing the Denver Nuggets means starting in the penthouse suite

    DENVER — It starts at the top, because success or failure always starts at the top, and Josh Kroenke so far has shown nothing that proves he should be at the top of the Nuggets. Brian Shaw is the easy fall guy. The coach is forever the lowest-hanging fruit. Shaw deserves a share of the blame for the franchise's historic collapse into...

  • Benched at start, Jared Sullinger helps Celtics beat Denver at end

    BOSTON — Jared Sullinger sat out the first quarter and then missed his first five shots. By the end, he found his touch. Benched at the start because of lateness, Sullinger made two free throws with 22.8 seconds left, lifting the Boston Celtics over the Denver Nuggets 104-100 Wednesday night. "Sometimes you miss shots. You can't make...

  • 4 O'Clock Shadow: Lack of respect tops long list of Nuggets problems

    The Nuggets lost again, and that's not the problem, so you know they have problems. This should offer some idea what I'm writing about in Thursday's Gazette. The Nuggets' problem will sound like something my high school would talk about, or something my mom would talk about, or something that just sounds kind of cheesy. It's respect. They...
