Nuggets GM Tim Connelly on Ty Lawson: “We’re all behind him”
After being arrested for drunk driving for the second time in less than six months, Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson was ordered into rehab. Nuggets GM Tim Connelly made his first public comments about Lawson since the arrest on Friday at Summer League in Las Vegas.

Hopefully, Lawson can get the help he needs. He’s a talented player, but he clearly has some personal issues he needs to deal with.
