Do Nuggets have own 1st rd draft pick 2014? If so, I guess we all now what's going on then...
Karl would definitely be an upgrade over Casey but ..... man, people who were outraged over Casey's rotations would be jumping off bridges watching Karl manage minutes.
By the way, I think he would be a good coach in Clipperland. Another star-laden, underachieving team would fit a big-name, underachieving coach perfectly.
but what if guys!

There's nothing strange going on at Denver. Just follow the money. The Ujiri let-go is self-explanatory: 1M/yr x 3 yrs vs. 3M/yr @ 5 yrs. That's a huge difference in bid/ask, especially for a small market team. Karl is trying to leverage COY into a long term deal. It's probably more money and longer term than Denver wants to pay.
In this case, I gotta give the benefit of the doubt to the owners. They are not going to let the players, coaches or GMs dictate terms to them. They have a policy not to over-pay and they stick to it. We have seen the result of over-paying in Toronto and what you have to show for it. Denver has been consistently good, so you have to give the owners the benefit of the doubt. Rap fans would have statues of Kroenke family commissioned based upon just making the playoffs a few years in a row, let alone 8 straight or something like that.
That said, I still don't want Karl here. He is somewhat like D'Antoni. His system is a bit of a gimmick style that works great in the regular season, but breaks down when the defensive intensity ratchets up in the playoffs.

Look if you want to tank you gotta keep Casey
Anyway, it sounds like he's note being brought back because he failed to lick boots.
I don't think Karl sits at home watching T.V. for a year. You have to think multiple teams are already contacting him to pick his mind.
Thing is, those Denver jobs don't look too bad otherwise. Really good team, set up for a few years. They should be able to find quality replacements. Denver will be fine without Karl.
