Welcome to Denver where you will need to fight for minutes on a team crowded with young forwards struggling to get PT.

I like his skill set and see him as a nice bench player for Denver - and see him likely to remain with Denver since his skill set is quite a bit different from Grant & Vanderbilt & Porter & Craig. With Millsap still here, those forward minutes are going to be hard to come by.

Cancar height is more close to MPJ or former Nuggets Lyles/Gallinari height than to Jokic.

Denver right now have too many forwards, but already next season it may change with Millsap, Grant, Juancho expiring (+ Beasley and Plumlee which can play some F-backup minutes).

I see him right now like some kind of 2020+ cheap roster assurance.

There are two things which can significantly improve Cancar value in Denver:
- improved 3pt% shooting. He needs at least 35%+ 3pt percentage, and he was never that good even with FIBA/NCAA threes so far.
- If he can play with that height equally good at SF in NBA

Cancar ans Craig are my two picks at way out playing projections. Of course w cancar that may mean barely playing but proving to be a part for the future. I think it might end up more than that even early on
