Locked on Denver Nuggets - 7.29 - Best & Worst case scenarios for Malik Beasley, Vlatko Cancar, Nikola Jokic

7/29/2019
More
In this episode, I predict the best and worst case scenarios for Malik Beasley, Vlatko Cancar, and Nikola Jokic. Beasley is in an interesting position with the Denver Nuggets.

Where will Beasley's minutes come from? Cancar has a great skill set and should look nice next to skilled, smart...
