The main hitch in this whole situation is that Reggie Evans is trying to negotiate a deal worth about five million dollars and the Nuggets have about three before they will be in violation of the NBA’s luxury tax. Unless the Nuggets make some moves with Kenyon Martin or somebody else. Reggie will most likely have to sacrifice some paycheck to remain a Nugget. The question for Reggie Evans will have to be whether or not all the intangible things are worth the paycheck cut.
Very tough situation for Mark Warkentien to be in no doubt. The Nuggets are trying to make moves to be a realistic contender as soon as possible. The problem is that Rome wasn’t built in a day and the pre-Carmelo Nuggets didn’t really have much to build from. Now that the Anthony-era is upon us, the moves the Nuggets are making need to continue to be in the right direction.
