It does not matter why head coach Brian Shaw is embracing a deep spinning because of his Denver Nuggets–it might be because the roster lacks a clear top eight, or it may be a sign the Nugs will use line modifications to double-down on fatigue-inducing speed at altitude like a lot of Denver squads before.
What matters is the fact that it’s a wise idea.
“There’s likely to be 10 guys at the start of the year, will be two at every position, that’ll be in the primary rotation,” Shaw stated, per Nate Timmons of all DenverStiffs.com. “with filthy difficulty or blowouts, 1 way or another, that will determine whether it gets deeper than that.”
