Karl Wants Nuggets To Improve Outside Shooting, Overall Athleticism
George Karl still sees areas of improvement for the Nuggets.
“Philosophically, I think we need shooting,” Karl said. “I think we need to make more shots than we did this year. We also want to run and get more athletic.”
John Jenkins, who led the nation in effective field-goal percentage, worked out twice in Denver.
Quincy Miller, a 6-foot-9 forward who, before suffering a torn ACL drew comparison to Kevin Durant, would certainly fit Karl’s uptempo style.
“I’m an energy guy, a tough guy,” Miller said after his predraft workout in Denver. “I think I translate well and fit in well with the Nuggets. I know they run. They shoot quick, they get to the cup quick and they get to the free throw line. That’s the type of player I think I am.”
