Believe it or not, the start of the NBA season is just around the corner. The 2020 NBA Draft is set to go down Wednesday night with the start of the season just a few weeks after.
Expectations are sky-high for the Denver Nuggets after they managed to advance to the Western Conference Finals during the 2020 season, and they will look to build on their success in the coming season.
That said, the competition will be tough in the Western Conference once again, as we have seen some big trades go down the last few days, including deals that will ship Chris Paul to the Phoenix Suns and Jrue Holiday to the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Nuggets were interested in acquiring Holiday, but not at the price the Bucks paid. Milwaukee shipped George Hill, Eric Bledsoe, three first-round picks and two pick swaps to New Orleans in exchange for the guard.
With Holiday off the board, the Nuggets will turn their attention elsewhere and are gearing up for the draft as they own the 22nd overall pick. We will have plenty of draft coverage on the site, so be sure to check back to DenverSportsBetting.com as we get closer to draft night.
For now, Aniello Piro and Ivan Buss of Denver Sports Betting discussed the state of the Nuggets and the trajectory of the team following the latest moves around the league. Watch the video above or click here to view.
As it stands, the Nuggets have 20/1 odds to win the NBA Finals, meaning a $25 would net a $525 payout if the Nuggets manage to pull off the improbable.
