KCP extension repeats same bet for Denver. If you think he’s good enough to trade Morris+Barton for him, you probably also think he’s worth 15M for his age 30-31 swasons.
One other thing: without a middle -class salary or two on books, it becomes very, very hard to make trades. – 10:52 PM

I still do not see how Watson, Gillespie or even Braun crack the rotation unless there are injuries
Murray, KCP, MPJ, Gordon, Jokic, Bones, Brown, and Jeff Green will without a doubt be ahead of all three in the rotation.
Reed, Nnaji and/or Cancar could very well be ahead too. – 10:36 PM

The #Nuggets weren’t going to trade two starters (and one in Morris who has two years left on his deal) unless they were confident they could get an extension done. Keep in mind, they wanted KCP dating back to, at least, this year’s trade deadline. – 10:27 PM

Wrote this about Kentavious Caldwell-Pope today before he and the Nuggets agreed to a 2-year extension. He would have been in demand if Denver let him get to free agency after next year. Nuggets now have their entire starting lineup under contract for the next 2+ seasons. pic.twitter.com/hRhm7tiuXr – 10:07 PM
