Nuggets podcast: Jamal Murray fires back, MPJ takes a seat, Facundo Campazzo hits the floor and trade deadline thoughts – The Denver Post

In the latest edition of the Nuggets Ink podcast, Mike Singer and Matt Schubert check in as the Denver Nuggets return from a rough East Coast road trip that saw them go 1-3 despite a series of big games from Jamal Murray. Among the topics discussed:

  • Jamal Murray fired back at Singer following a loss at the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night — the Nuggets’ third in four games. Was it a sign of the star point guard’s frustration with a team struggling to consistently win games? Should there be reason for concern in the Nuggets locker room?
  • Michael Porter Jr. didn’t see the court in the fourth quarter of the Nuggets’ loss Sunday night. Why wasn’t he on the floor? Is the second-year forward in coach Michael Malone’s doghouse once again? Is Malone hurting the team’s ability to properly evaluate Porter ahead of restricted free agency?
  • Facundo Campazzo found himself in the starting lineup for the first time last week. How should we gauge his contributions? Does his play warrant more trust from Malone? Does he play with too much energy? Is his inconsistent shooting hurting Denver when he plays in the fourth quarter?
  • The trade deadline is a month away. What sort of players should executive Tim Connelly be looking for? Is there someone on the market who fits a Nuggets need? What could they offer that might intrigue teams looking to be sellers at the deadline?
