After a fast and furious start to the 2013 offseason, we have reached the point where everything has slowed down considerably and we can look back at how each NBA team improved or failed to improve for the 2013-14 season.
There will still be some player movement the rest of the summer, but likely nothing major enough to really make an impact on this offseason.
With that being said, let’s take a look division by division at how each team in the NBA fared this offseason.
Next we look at the Northwest Division.
Rookies: G Erick Green, F Joffrey Lauvergne
Free Agents: F/C J.J. Hickson, C Timofey Mozgov (re-signed), G Nate Robinson
Trades: F Darrell Arthur, G Randy Foye
Free Agents: F Corey Brewer
Trades: G/F Andre Iguodala, C Kosta Koufos
Fresh off a very good regular season and disappointing first-round playoff exit, the Denver Nuggets are heading in the wrong direction.
Perhaps the biggest loss came in the front office and coaching staff where Executive of the Year Masai Ujiri ended up in Toronto; his right-hand man Pete D’Alessandro became the Sacramento Kings general manager; and the team didn’t re-sign Coach of the Year George Karl.
Add to that that Andre Iguodala bolted for Golden State and it has been a bad offseason for the Nuggets.
Hey added some depth pieces in Hickson, Robinson, Foye and Arthur which should strengthen the bench and the hiring of Brian Shaw as head coach was a good one, but this Nuggets franchise lost a lot.
