The NBA’s reigning back-to-back MVP returns to this Nuggets roster to begin his last regular season before his supermax contract officially kicks in. To support him, this team will lean on SG Jamal Murray — particularly on the offensive end — as he returns from an ACL injury that has hindered him for much of the last 2 seasons. With Kantavious Caldwell-Pope, Aaron Gordon, and Michael Porter Jr also in the lineup, the Nuggets look to be a more versatile team defensively, an area they struggled in last year. Other key roster pieces include Bones Hyland, Bruce Brown, Davon Reed and DeAndre Jordan.
