Harris, Murray, Barton, Beasley, Morris, Thomas deepest guard group in NBA


It would be hard for anyone else to crack that group. When Isaiah Thomas is ready to go, it'll be hard to give him much playing time. They may use him like a pinch hitter and see if he can come in and start a spurt.

Beasley has earned 25-30m per game. It will be hard to balance all of it without playing 3 out of those 6 at a time.

The way Jokic, Plumlee and Millsap rebound, the Nuggets can afford to play 3 guards.

I think Juancho and Trey Lyles are the odd-men out when everyone is healthy---and they are solid NBA backups. Beasley is making Juancho unnecessary. Michael Porter will take minutes from Lyles and Millsap next season and he will eventually be a hybrid 3/4. He will benefit from Jokic's passing. Jared Vanderbilt is two years away, but is a rebounding beast.

Hard to believe, but if Porter gets healthy and is who they think he can be, the Nuggets will be better than this year.
