    Fansided: Denver Nuggets: Vlatko Cancar ready to take the next step

    The Denver Nuggets signed Vlatko Cancar this offseason with the hope that the versatile forward, who was drafted in 2017, will be able to contribute at some point this season. Cancar has spent this offseason preparing for NBA basketball and recently did an interview with Eric Spyropoulos of NBA.com detailing what he has been up to this summer.

    Cancar made no mistake in identifying the speed of the NBA game as the aspect he is working on the most at this time. "I'm trying to get the system of the NBA as fast as possible....Here the game is quicker, every decision has to be faster, so this is a big transition from Europe to the NBA.

    Despite not having a pick in the 2019 Draft, the Denver Nuggets came away with a big man oozing with potential in Bol Bol. After the 19-year-old big man fell into the middle of the second round, Denver pounced on the opportunity to add yet another dynamic player to the team's young core.

    "With Bol, at 44 it's almost laughable at how much of a no-brainer it was," Nuggets VP of Strategy & Analytics Tommy Balcetis told Nuggets.com. "He's a tremendous talent and, from what we've seen, a very good guy. We all collectively had him very high.

    Fansided: Denver Nuggets: 3 Bold Predictions for Malik Beasley in 2019-20

    The Denver Nuggets' bold predictions series rolls on with Malik Beasley as today's topic. Beasley is one of the brightest young stars on this team. His athleticism makes him a threat to put opponents on a poster every time down the floor, and his offense was the best of his three-year career last season in his massively increased role. In 2019-20, he has a chance for his role to grow even more while he continues to move up the bench player rankings.

    In the 2018-19 season, per-36 minutes, Beasley averaged 17.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.

    Denver Stiffs: 20 questions: Is Gary Harris a third star or an elite role player?

    For the next month, Denver Stiffs writers will ask and answer one question per weekday to help preview the 2019-20 Denver Nuggets season. The next question is about Gary Harris.

    For as much discussion is had around Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr., and for as much responsibility is held by Nikola Jokic, the key swing piece in the 2019-20 season is Gary Harris. The starting shooting guard doesn't have the fanfare or insanely high expectations surrounding him like Murray or Porter, but his presence is entrenched in one of the most important questions heading into this season: do the Nuggets have enough talent to win a title?

    Fansided: Denver Nuggets rookie Bol Bol has a chance to change how view G League development

    Out of the last eight NBA G League Rookie of the Year winners, none of them ranked inside the top 10 in the Recruiting Services Index Rankings coming out of high school. But Denver Nuggets rookie Bol Bol (No. 6 in 2016 RSCI rankings) has a legitimate chance to become the first impact high school basketball recruit to find his game in the G League. There is quite a bit of hope surrounding Bol despite only playing 268 minutes of college basketball. He played 9 games at Oregon, looking like a legitimate stretch five as he blocked 3.6 shots per 40 minutes and shot 52% from the 3-point line on a very limited 25 attempts from deep.

    Denver Stiffs: FIBA World Cup was kind to it's Denver Nuggets participants

    The festivities have come to a close out in China at the FIBA World Cup, and lo and behold a member of the Denver Nuggets is bringing home the gold. Many pegged generational center Nikola Jokic as the likely candidate to win FIBA's top prize, but ultimately it was Juancho Hernangomez and his fellow Spaniards who emerged victorious. Juancho became a vital part of his team's rotation and showed promise that hasn't been seen since he was last fully healthy at the beginning of the 2018-19 season. Meanwhile, for Jokic it is obviously a disappointment to finish in fifth place, but the tournament was still another display of his superior ability on the court.

    DENVER - Sometimes heroes come in soft, fluffy packages.

    On Saturday, mascots from Kroenke Sports and Entertainment banded together to help with Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children's Teddy Bear Drive. Rocky from Denver Nuggets, Bernie the St. Bernard from the Avalanche and the Mammoth's Wooly were all in attendance to greet families and help the initiative in its third year.

    Last year, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children (RMHC) received 4,000 Teddy Bear donations and organizers believe this year's event will exceed those totals. The hospital firmly believes that giving stuffed animals to children in need is a significant benefit in their road to recovery.
