Jusuf Nurkic Will Play For The Nuggets This Season


Amazing news Nuggets fans. Jusuf Nurkic will in fact play for the Nuggets this season. There has been many different reports that he would not play for the Nuggets, but he is in fact laying for them this season! Nurkic will be bought out by his team overseas and he will be free to sign a new deal with the Nuggets this off-season.

The Nuggets are in my opinion one of the biggest winners in this years draft. They got their man, Garry Harris at #18 and in a throw in with Nurkic. Nurkic is going to be limited to playing team due to the talent at center. Most likely, Timofey Mozgov will be the starting center and J.J. Hickson will back him up. Nurkic, will then slid in to the 3rd spot on the team. It would be surprising if he played anymore than around 15 minutes a game, but fans should just be happy he is going to be on the roster this season.
