The Nuggets have one of the deepest young teams in the NBA. The combination of their tweener forwards and their depth make Faried’s job easier to produce big numbers.
The team is deep at center. With JaVale McGee, Kosta Koufos and Timofey Mozgov, the team is in a position that other teams dream about.
Gallinari is listed as the team’s small forward. Wilson Chandler, who averaged 9.4 points, 2.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game in last year’s shortened season, is his backup.
In case of any injury to a power forward, Gallinari can easily step up to fill the role.
The tweener advantage will definitely come in handy considering that the team is relatively thin at power forward.
Not to mention, the team has Andre Iguodala, who played small forward in Philadelphia, listed as shooting guard.
