Nuggets running into snags hiring new GM

From the sounds of it the Denver Nuggets top option, former Phoenix Suns assistant general manager David Griffin, is out of the running for the Denver’s general manager job. The main issue was financial issues, as Denver wasn’t willing to offer Griffin $1 million for the job.

Denver is still quickly trying to get a deal done for their new GM so they can start working with Carmelo Anthony on an extension or even trading the superstar.

With issues remaining with Griffin, it means the Nuggets may turn to Toronto assistant general manager Masai Ujiri as their top priority. Ujiri, who previously worked for the Nuggets as their director of international scouting, and has remained close with Stan Kroenke. He is considered one of the top international scouts and while he doesn’t carry the brass that Mark Warkentien had, he might be a good fit with Josh Kroenke and Bret Bearup in the Nuggets organization.
