Denver: Is Their Answer at Point Guard on the Roster?

Denver has their franchise cornerstone in Nikola Jokic in the middle and they went out and signed Paull Millsap in free agency to form one of the best front courts in the NBA.

We know what their bigs will bring, it’s the back court that brings the questions.

Gary Harris will be the starting two guard again and will continue to grow into a potential star in the league, but the point guard spot beside of him will be the key to Denver’s potential this season.

Jamal Murray is the most logical pick but he is more of a combo guard. Emmanual Mudiay was supposed to be that guy, but hasn’t met expectations so far in his short career. Jameer Nelson played more than people imagined last year and is back for another year.

Is the answer to point guard one of these guys or is it someone on another team that will be acquired via trade?
