NBA Analyst Says Bradley Beal Could Turn Nuggets Into ‘NBA’s Best Offense’

The Denver Nuggets are already in the hunt for a Championship this season. So how much better could they be with one more All-Star-caliber player?

In a recent article by Bleacher Report's Zach Buckley, the Nuggets could look towards Bradley Beal to load-up on star power for the upcoming season.

“The Nuggets are coming off a 54-win season—the Wizards maxed out at 49 in 2016-17—and they have yet to see the best basketball from 24-year-old centerpiece Nikola Jokic or 22-year-old co-star Jamal Murray. Add Beal to the equation and this might become the NBA’s best offense. All three are potent playmakers, all three are capable outside shooters, and all three can deliver crunch-time knockouts. Each would have a chance to create, but none would dominate the basketball. The Nuggets could play their brand of the beautiful game and have just enough star power to sneak out of the reconfigured West.”

With Beal, Denver would boast one of the league's best offenses. The sum of Jokic, Murray, and Beal would have them squarely in contention for a title. The deal would involve sending Gary Harris, Michael Porter Jr., Jarred Vanderbilt, a 2022 first-round pick, and a 2024 first-round pick to the Wizards in exchange for Beal.

There is no telling what might go down in the coming weeks, but expect them to consider all options as they attempt to go all-the-way this season.
