Denver Nuggets Getting Inside 2009-09-18

Denver Nuggets Getting Inside 2009-09-18Nuggets vice president of basketball operations Mark Warkentien usually plays it close to the vest when revealing what his team might do. But he's not trying to hide one thing.

"We're going to sign a wing player," Warkentien said.

That's hardly a secret. The Nuggets during the offseason lost wing players Dahntay Jones and Linas Kleiza in free agency and signed only Arron Afflalo at the position. Furthermore, Nuggets shooting guard J.R. Smith is out for the first seven games this season due to an NBA suspension for pleading guilty to reckless driving in a 2007 accident in which a passenger in his car was killed.

Three top free-agent candidates have emerged for the Nuggets as they look to make a move before the Sept. 26 start of training camp. They are Wally Szczerbiak, Flip Murray and Rashad McCants.

Szczerbiak confirmed he's "in discussions" with the Nuggets. But he didn't want to go into much detail.

Time is running out for the Nuggets. They likely would want to give whichever free agent they choose a minimum contract. But Denver does have its bi-annual exception of $1.99 million available.
