Denver Nuggets general manager Calvin Booth was apparently quite happy to let Bruce Brown move on in the offseason. He rates Peyton Watson as a better player. "Some of these teams were trying to get Bruce, trying to make it worth it; it's like, just be careful what you wish for," Booth told Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer. "Peyton's bigger. He's longer. He's more athletic. He guards better. He passes better. He doesn't have the experience, and he's not as good offensively yet, but we need defense more than we need offense on our team." Watson was only a bit-part player during his rookie campaign, but he's expected to make a big leap in 2023-24.
Forward Bruce Brown agreed to a two-year, $45 million contract with the Pacers. The 26-year-old averaged a career-high 11.5 points in Denver last season and was instrumental in helping the Nuggets secure an NBA Championship. While Brown hasn't been a consistent fantasy producer, that may change in Indiana, mainly since he could take on a more prominent role on both ends of the floor.
Denver Nuggets guard Bruce Brown is already looking at a hot market for his services in free agency as he reportedly had some interest from the Lakers and Mavericks, and three more teams will enter the mix. According to Kelly Iko of The Athletic, Brown is set to meet with the Rockets, Pacers, and Knicks at the outset of free agency. The 26-year-old was a key role player for the Nuggets during their championship run as he averaged 12.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.1 steals per contest in the playoffs. He'll likely take on a similar role if he goes to another contending team.
Denver Nuggets guard Bruce Brown is set to become a free agent this summer. The 26-year-old is expected to have multiple suitors this offseason. The Los Angeles Lakers have already reportedly shown in Brown. Now, the Dallas Mavericks are expected to have a meeting with Brown when free agency opens on Friday. Brown should be in for a decent payday after averaging 11.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in 80 games. He has mentioned he'd like to return to the Nuggets long term. However, Denver is only able to offer Brown $7.8 million for next season.
