NBA Free Agency 2012: 10 Players Denver Nuggets Must Avoid

After losing a back-and-forth game Sunday night against the Los Angeles Lakers to go down 3-1 in their first-round series, the Denver Nuggets look to start their offseason soon.

This team has had four looks—Melo, New York Nuggets, 2011 Nuggets and the post-Nene Nuggets now—and there's no sign of the changes stopping any time soon.

Veteran point guard Andre Miller is set to come off the books at the end of the year and Denver should look to replace him. Miller said he still wants to start, but his leadership has been lacking on the court.

The team can send Rudy Fernandez a qualifying offer of $3.2 million, but rumor has it he's heading back to Spain after his back heals.

And newest Nugget, JaVale McGee has a $3.5 million qualifying offer and wants to be paid $10 million annually. It still has to be seen whether the Nuggets will re-sign him or not, but they should attempt to after he played well down the stretch in his first postseason.

In all, Denver should be $16-19 million under the cap in 2012, meaning there could be many additions in the offseason.

This is a list of free agents the Nuggs should avoid at all costs.
