Alright, a NEW DREAM, here goes

Current roster:

C Jokic, Bol
PF {Bol}
SF MPJ, KDB, Cancar
SG Harris, Barton
PG Murray, Morris, Dozier

Trades:
1) C Mason Plumlee (S&T 3yr/27MM) + #22 to WAS for #9
WAS get size at the C position for moving down
DEN moves up in the draft

2) Will Barton + #9 to SAS for 11th pick, pick #41 and PG DeJounte Murray
SAS sees F Patrick Williams falls and jumps up to get him. White moves over to the PG position while Barton takes the SG role
DEN acquires Murray, swaps out Barton's salary while getting SG Devin Vassell plus Wing Josh Hall in the 2nd

3) DEN trades Monte Morris, SF Vlatko Cancar for #21, 2021 2nd (via NYK) and Matisse Thybulle
PHI trades to pick up their PGOTF, moves Simmons to PF
DEN gets a defensive SG in Thybulle, allows Vassell to develop. Also selects F/C Isaiah Stewart and supplements 2021 draft with a high 2nd

New roster:

C Jokic, Bol
PF Stewart
SF MPJ, KDB, Hall
SG Harris, Thybulle, Vassell
PG Murray, DeJ.Murray, Dozier

Free Agency:

Denver resigns PF Grant 4yrs for $64MM. Denver gets it's best Free Agent back in the fold.

Denver uses MLE to sign Danillo Gallinari for 3-yr (2+1PO) for $24MM, strengthens the bench and provides versatility.

Denver using BAE on C Marc Gasol to 2-yr (1+1TO) for $7MM. He provides size, some scoring and has experience.

Final roster:

C Jokic, Gasol, Bol
PF Grant, Gallo, Stewart
SF MPJ, KDB, Vassell
SG Harris, Thybulle, Vassell
PG Murray, DeJ. Murray, Dozier
Tyler Cook, Josh Hall (2-way)

We get even younger but still build towards a chip. This bench is one of the strongest in the NBA. Welcome to your 2021 NBA Champions !!

I think you would have to give up more for the 11th and Murray from the Spurs, as bad as Murray played last year they still seem really high on him.

I do like your ending roster though.

Terrible valuations powder puff squad. Don’t get too hung up on the worthy part when this thread is called cringe worthy.


Gary Harris and Barton Prob take monte Morris to move but those 2 being traded are part of any Nugs trades

Well, everyone has their own opinion but since you're so quick to devalue my input, are you man enough to put out your own thoughts on this "cringe-worthy" thread ?? :lol: :lol:

As for your Barton/Harris comment, I'd disagree completely. Barton had his best season, is a lockerroom leader and easily can hold 1st round value. Harris' defensive prowess is somewhat justifying his salary and he is capable of bouncing back from a couple of sub-par
offensive seasons, but does he need to with Joker, Murray, and MPJ ??

C'mon Coeur, this should be right up your ballpark, have some fun with it !! Take 5mins away from your NBA 2020K video game and share you insightfulness, we need some more :crazy:

Yeah, I thought about that too, I'd probably add in Dozier or a 2021 lottery-protected 1st but not much more. And from what I've read, White is more highly thought of down in SAS and they need some youth in the front court.
