There is no masking it, the Denver Nuggets were awful last season. Roster turnover, injuries and a near mutiny derailed what could have been a promising season in the Rocky Mountains. Now that their nightmare of a season is over, we look into the crystal ball to see what the Denver Nuggets' starting unit will look like in 2014-15.
Baring a trade, Lawson is expected to be back at full strength to lead the Nuggets attack, which suffered tremendously in his absence. But rumors have it that Lawson may want out of Denver, so the trade watch is on in the Mile High City.
Foye did a good job last season and was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dark season in Denver. Expect him to be the team's starting two-guard next year.
Gallinari will be the team's starting small forward next year because his contract -- million for two more years -- is almost impossible to move. The biggest question surrounding Gallinari is his health, as in, can he stay healthy next year? That remains to be seen.
"The Manimal" has one more year left on his rookie contract, and he will almost certainly command top money in 2015. That is leading to rumors that the Nuggets front office is looking to trade their second-best player this summer. If the rumors turn out not to be true, then expect him to be the team's starting power forward gobbling up rebounds next season.
Although he is drastically overpaid, Hickson did a fine job with the Nuggets last season. Baring J.J. being packaged in any trade deals, look for him to anchor the middle for Denver next season.
