Denver Nuggets: Complete Preview, Predictions & Storylines to Watch in 2012-13

When we last saw the Denver Nuggets, they were in the midst of a first-round playoff exit to the Los Angeles Lakers—a team they can’t seem to shake in the spring.

Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri realized that they simply didn’t have the right pieces to compete with L.A., so he got involved in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes this summer.

Although Denver never had a real shot at landing the superstar center, it was more than willing to lend a hand for the right price.

While Howard ultimately wound up with their rival, the Nuggets were able to acquire a perfect asset for their roster in Andre Iguodala, and they managed to dump an awful contract in the process.

The Nuggets aren’t exactly a championship team with the arrival of Iggy, but they have perfectly positioned themselves to strike at a moment's notice and could make the leap to legitimate contender by the trade deadline in March.

With the regular season just around the corner, let’s take a look at the various moves the Nuggets made in the offseason, check out the projected depth chart, point out some of the roster's strengths and weaknesses, make some projections for their 2012-13 campaign and much more.
