After lending a helping hand in the Nuggets’ pitch to free-agent power forward Paul Millsap, Brandon Marshall may not be done helping Denver’s NBA franchise just yet.
“I’m trying to work on my point guard skills,” Marshall said after showing off the Nuggets socks, sent to him by the team, that he wore during Sunday’s practice. “I’m only tall enough to play point.”
The Nuggets made Marshall a customized No. 54 jersey in gratitude for his joining the team’s convoy that met Millsap at his home outside Atlanta on July 1, a meeting that led to Millsap signing a three-year, $90 million deal with Denver.
Asked whether he could help the Nuggets broker a deal for star point guard Kyrie Irving, who has requested to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Marshall mused: “If they give me a call, I’ll fly out.”
