Karl told Hochman that the Nuggets could persuade Nene in resigning and said
I have no problem with Nene expressing his opinions on his position. I think me and the organization very much want him here. I think with the situation of this year, maybe he felt like he needed more contact (about the contract). (But) from what I know with my relationship with Nene and his love for Denver, I just think things are going to get worked out, I really do.
Hochman also hinted that the Nuggets starting power forward Kenyon Martin may move on and be replaced by backup center Timofey Mozgov.
