Nuggets GM wins Executive of the Year

One trade can make all the nosie, but it’s the moves people forget about that make all the difference: “Aside from the Billups trade, the Nuggets traded Marcus Camby and let forward Eduardo Najera leave in the offseason. In their places the Nuggets signed [Dahntay] Jones, Chris Andersen and Renaldo Balkman, giving them one of the strongest benches in the league at a low cost. ‘I think there’s always a value in going against the grain,’ Warkentien said. ‘When the masses are going one way, you’re a little better off not totally rejecting where they’re going, but if they’re going there you need to look at the other things that are out there.'”
