Nuggets GM: ‘Options Open’ on Signing Hernangomez


The Nuggets selected Juan Hernangomez with the No. 15 pick in the draft because he offers a nice package of size (6-foot-9, 230 pounds) and skill. Whether any of that gets put on the court next season remains to be seen.

The sides will negotiate what’s best for the 20-year-old, either bringing him here to get his NBA career started or waiting a year to do it.

“Both options are open,” Connelly said. “There are some pretty good international situations, if we want him to marinate a bit overseas. I think certainly he has the game to come over. If you’re productive at the ACB level, it usually translates. But it’s a conversation we’re going to have with his representatives and figure it out.”
