Nuggets Offseason: George Karl Says Team Has 'Too Many' PF/C Prospects On Roster

The Denver Nuggets have enjoyed a busy 2012 NBA Free Agency period, but they may be creating a minutes crunch in the frontcourt for the upcoming season. Incumbent big men Kenneth Faried, Al Harrington, Kosta Koufos and Timofey Mozgov join re-signed center JaVale McGee and new power forward addition Anthony Randolph in a crowded positional grouping that head coach George Karl will have trouble balancing. Karl admitted it will be a challenge to find minutes for everyone in a recent interview with Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post, even saying that the team has "too many" bigs:

"There's no question, it's too many [players at the power forward and center positions]. It's a situation that if everybody is healthy, it's going to be a tough thing. There's no question that 1-2 players, might even be three, might not be happy with the minutes they get. But I always tell people that it's a much better situation than the opposite one. Having good players usually figures its way out - sometimes that's by trade, sometimes it just works out."

In reality, this is probably a good problem for the Nuggets. Given the length of the NBA season, the premium price set on big men and inevitability of injuries, too many might be just the right amount.
