On today’s show, Dane is joined by Adam Mares of DNVR Sports, who has covered Tim Connelly for eight years in Denver. Adam helps shed light on not only what Connelly has done from a roster construction standpoint in Denver to who he is as a person and leader.
In this episode, you’ll be able to glean the Denver perspective of the move (disappointment), while also better understanding what Connelly’s strengths and weaknesses as a lead executive have been. Topics include...
— The Denver perspective on losing their chief decision-maker in what is likely the most important summer of the Nikola Jokic era
— How the rest of the league is viewing the tactics the Wolves are using to pry away Connelly, specifically using ownership stake as a carrot
— Is this a bigger loss for Denver than it is a gain for Minnesota?
— Connelly’s background coming from a basketball family in Baltimore
— Connelly’s track record of establishing culture and finding gems in the draft, and more question marks about his trading tracking
— Will Connelly influence the style of play?
— Chris Finch and Tim Connelly’s personality similarities
— How Connelly might round out his front office
