Brian Shaw says Nuggets may look to add another point guard
The Denver Nuggets have struggled to maintain consistent depth in the backcourt. Ty Lawson is an All-Star-level point guard, but injuries to Nate Robinson and Randy Foye have depleted their guard rotation. Head coach Brian Shaw recognizes it’s a problem.
Shaw even hinted that the front office could look to add another point guard, whether via free agency or trade.
There’s not much out there in the way of free-agent point guards—you’re looking at the Will Bynums and John Lucas III’s at this point. But the Nuggets have plenty of expendable contracts, including J.J. Hickson, Wilson Chandler, Arron Afflalo, Timofey Mozgov and JaVale McGee. Interest in those players may vary, but they have the pieces to make the money work if they want to trade for a point guard at some point in the season.
