Nurkic looks like he's found a new home, I haven't seen any of the games but he looks like he's finally getting the opportunity he wanted.

But he showed why he was a 16th pick. Not every center is getting those numbers against Philly, right? Crazy how Denver knocked it out of the park with that draft. But funny why they traded him to the team that's right behind them in the standings. May bite them in the...

Denver gets "older reached his peak" Plumlee and 2nd round pick.
