So we'll see how it works out.

Why change it? You are one of the rare cases of a 1st round draft pick getting traded TWICE for a bag of chips in less than a month. And he is only in his second season!
What is quite obvious from this kid is that he doesn't see himself as the problem.
But still it's a good gamble on the Nuggs part. They got him for nothing. Who knows how he is going to turn out.
