Top 10 Denver Nuggets Players of 2019-20

Previously I made a list about the Warriors. Now let’s just go down the line with the next best team. The Denver Nuggets. They had a pretty successful year until they got knocked out in the conference semifinals by the Blazers Who we’ll get to eventually
The Top Ten
1 Nikola Jokic Nikola Jokić is a Serbian professional basketball player for the Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association.

Nikola Jokic is the leader of this team. In my opinion, he is the second-best player on this team. He is the model of efficiency, with a 57% effective field goal percentage. He has never dipped below 54%.

Last year, he had arguably his best season yet, and I expect him to continue building on that. He's only 24 and still has plenty of years left in his prime.

2 Will Barton

Will Barton is an unusual player, and his playing time seems to stagnate. This was his first year as a full-time starter. Could they possibly find an upgrade, though?

A versatile player who had a bit of a setback year in 2018. Luckily, he's staying in Denver for the short-term future.

3 Jamal Murray Jamal Murray is a Canadian professional basketball player for the Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association.

Arguably one of the best players Denver has, he averaged 18 points per game in 2018. Denver seems to be keeping him around for a while, so expect him to continue playing a big role.

Jamal Murray is a bucket. He is only 23, but he's averaging 18 points per game, which is good for a 23-year-old. He could climb into that upper echelon of point guards in 3-5 years.

4 Jerami Grant

Jerami Grant is shooting 40% from three. That is very surprising, considering his shooting was a significant concern coming in.

Last year, he had a breakout season with OKC in a way. Now, with the Nuggets, he has a chance to break out once again.

5 Gary Harris

He's pretty much in the same spot as Barton. They are just average players. Harris would be a good sixth man, but he makes a lot of money to only be a sixth man.

He's a decent player who could play a significant role this upcoming season. The Nuggets still have him for a few more seasons.

6 Paul Millsap Paul Millsap is an American professional basketball player for the Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association.

Paul Millsap has turned into a great stretch four. He is shooting 44% from three.

His contract isn't so bad anymore, since this is his last year. He obviously isn't an All-Star anymore, but if you can re-sign him for cheap, do it.

Arguably one of the top three players for Denver a year ago. If he stays, he'll likely be one of the best.

The only reason he's ranked so low is that his contract is uncertain. He could either stay or become a free agent.

7 Michael Porter Jr

On to MPJ. I am a huge Porter fan. I am genuinely upset that he isn't starting. He has played well in the minutes he has played.

He is averaging 8 points and 4 rebounds, shooting an impressive 42% from three on about two attempts per game. Note: in some of those games, he only played like five minutes.

I like MPJ, and he has shown encouraging signs. Play him more.

This is a guy I expect to see getting some action. He wasn't able to last year, but he has the potential to do well in the NBA.

8 Malik Beasley

Last year, he had a career year for Denver. Now, he'll be entering the final year of his current contract, so Denver will have a decision to make at the end of the season.

9 Monte Morris

Monte Morris is a good backup point guard, and I think he could be a great player for the Nuggets.

10 Mason Plumlee Mason Alexander Plumlee is an American professional basketball player for the Portland Trail Blazers of the National Basketball Association.

Plumlee is entering the final year of his current contract, and he'll be a decent big bench player. He was fairly consistent, and with Bol Bol likely needing time to develop, Plumlee should be able to build on his stats from last year.

A decent backup center. He is averaging about 7 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists. They could find someone better, though.

The Contenders
11 Bol Bol

The Nuggets acquired him from the Heat. Assuming he recovers from his injury, he has the potential to thrive in the NBA.

12 Torrey Craig
