Denver literally has 9 wings if you count Jerami Grant and Michael Porter Jr. If they don't trade Will Barton... man.

I read this news today, but personally, I have no clue who PJ Dozier is. I'm now confused about why we left Goodwin or not tried harder to sign Summer League undrafted sensation Terence Daves, or why we still didn't sign Bol Bol. We need more guards in cases someone gets an injury, so this move has some sense if this guy has some value. He has empty stats last season with Boston, but he played as a combo guard in a team which already have Irving, Smart, Rozier...

PJ Dozier has played 8 games in the NBA for a total of 54 minutes and that's over 2 years. He makes a nice practice player. Perhaps the Nuggets let Goodwin leave so he had a chance to play somewhere. Our current guard situation is:

Harris-Beasley
Murray-Morris and without injury, there will be zero minutes available for Dozier.

If we have two or more injuries at guard, the most likely replacements will be Barton & Craig.

I do hope the title was sarcasm by the OP - reminder, sarcasm is not portrayed in written text, so we use green font to indicate sarcasm - it helps.

Not sure PJ Dozier would even see the floor with our depth...would have rather signed Bol Bol to the roster rather than a 2-way that seems inevitable now

Sometimes our front office amazes me.

So now our roster is:

2 centers again - Jokic, Plumlee
4 PFs - Millsap, Grant, Vanderbilt, Cancar
4 SFs - Barton, Hernangomez, Porter, Craig
3 SGs - Harris, Beasley, Dozier
2 PGs - Murray, Morris

How will four PFs all play?
How will four SFs all play? --- even with injuries, we have plenty of forwards, many of which are interchangeable.

But I agree with Skywalker: having Bol or Welsh makes sense. Denver has gambled on both Jokic & Plumlee being available for most of the season. Jokic has missed 9 games in the last two years and Plumlee has missed 8 games. Of course three years ago, Jokic missed 9 games and Plumlee missed 55 games. Can we continue that gamble?

Per Denver Stiff's, Dozier's deal is a Training Camp deal so appears we still have one roster spot available.

PJ Dozier is not the missing championship piece for Nuggets. The missing piece is Tyler Cook.
