Denver was just trying to get some salary cap relief. That has to be the only reason. That's probably why they didn't get a player in return but rather just a pick. They basically made over 10 million dollars just by trading him.

It's only been 2games but the loss of Camby is not as bad as I originally thought. Looks like rebounby committee and that may work. They have picked up a little more defensive intensity with their additions so things may not be as bad as everybody thought!

The Nuggets saved 10 mill by losing his salary, and possibly another 10 mill of luxury tax money

Its not as big of a deal as people make it out to be...We gained a 10 mill TE..and Camby was overratted on defense..He was an amazing week side shot blocker...was a pretty poor man to man defender had no post game liked to take that ugly jumper from Above the free throw line that never went in he was an amazing rebounder tho..But now the he is gone we will be forced to play team defense. If we use the trade exception to get a good point guard that can hit open jumpers and is a pass first point guard and can play some d then I'm happy with it

I highly doubt we use the trade exempt until AI's contract is up. Kroenke & co don't want to pay luxury tax again.

One thing I have learned about this team is anything is possible you never know what there going to do...If I had it my way I'd say blow it up and start over again keeping Melo and J.R, Kleiza and get rid of everyone else and try the lottery again and see what happens

It's hard to blow up a team when you've got nene and kmart in ridiculous contracts for years to come.
