The “defending champion” Denver Nuggets (hereafter Denver) fired a signal to sign.

According to NBA transfer market expert reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, Denver signed a one-year contract with Justin Halladay (34) on the morning of the 3rd (Korean time).

Previously, Denver had key rotational resources leaving the team one after another. Bruce Brown has left for the Indiana Pacers and Jeff Green has left for the Houston Rockets. They offered Halladay the team’s first free agent contract this season after re-signing veterans like Reggie Jackson and DeAndre Jordan.

Justin Halladay, older brother of Milwaukee Bucks’ George Halladay and Atlanta Hawks’ Aaron Halladay, is predicted to have signed a veteran minimum contract.

Holliday, with his 6-foot-6, 180-pound (198 cm; 82 kg) physique, can serve as a wing resource. He played 622 games in 11 seasons in the NBA, averaging 8.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.9 steals, 3-pointers on 36.3% (4.5 attempts) and 81.7% (1.1 attempts) from free throws.

Halladay, who started last season in Atlanta, joined the Dallas Mavericks (Dallas) midway through and took on the role of assistant to Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. Halladay didn’t perform as Dallas expected, but he could replace Brown’s role as assistant to Nicola Jokic and Jamal Murray in Denver.

Best of all, Holliday was in much better shape in Atlanta with Dizonte Murray and Trae Young. His 34.5 percent (3.1 attempts) from Atlanta was higher than the 28.6 percent (3.1 attempts) he had at Dallas.토토사이트

With good defensive skills, Holliday can play as a rotation member. He’ll have to balance a broken shot in Dallas, but Denver has great coaches like Mike Malone on hand.
