Summer League is over, but at least we still have the Olympics to tide us over. In case you missed Ryan Knaus' (@Knaus_RW) first part of Summer League recap, bang it here. The Mavs were extremely busy in Summer League with five games in Orlando and six games in Las Vegas, but all those games didn't really show too much.
Now that free agency is all but done and the headline deals were made weeks ago (no offense to Mike Miller) the Denver Nuggets are left facing the potential of another season where the major roster improvements are expected to come from getting players healthy and improving the returning members of the team. While the Golden State Warriors made a free agent signing that will be talked about in the annals of NBA history and the Chicago Bulls were bringing an aging star home, the Nuggets were left either unable to secure a meeting with a star or to spin a failed one as good for the organization. Meanwhile, despite the promise of Nikola Jokic, Emmanuel Mudiay, Jamal Murray and a handful of other barely old enough to legally drink alcohol prospects, Denver remains a basketball wasteland, at least from a notoriety and championships standpoint.
