Welcome to the Emmanuel Mudiay era in Denver.
The Nuggets have a team with a few quality veterans — Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler — but the ball will be in the hands of the rookie Mudiay. Does that mean Mudiay will lead the team in scoring? In our preview with Jenna Corrado, that becomes the question.
I will bet on Gallinari. Mudiay will take a lot of shots, but I don’t expect him to be terribly efficient as a rookie. However, just wait until next year.
