The Scoop:Ty Lawson will start at PG and Arron Afflalo has the SG job locked up, so Foye will join Nate Robinson as the lead guards for Denver's second unit. He'll have a few nice scoring games, and is a reliable source of 3-pointers, but doesn't have enough upside to be more than a flier pick.
The Scoop:There is no word of an MRI and it's likely just a day-to-day issue. Foye was outstanding last season for the Nuggets, but he'll have his role diminished with Arron Afflalo and Danilo Gallinari around. He's not worth drafting in most leagues.
The Scoop:"As an athlete and competitor, you've been competing and going against guys your whole life," Foye said. "It's going to be fun. I take it as a challenge and I look forward to it." Foye lit it up from beyond the arc last season, averaging 2.3 three-pointers a game, to go along with 13.2 points, and 3.5 assists through 30.7 minutes of action. The introduction of Afflalo to the Denver roster, partnered with the return of Nate Robinson (knee) will make it difficult for Foye to return to last season's averages, and he doesn't look like much more than a 3-point specialist.
The Scoop:"He's been in [the Pepsi Center] putting in work," coach Brian Shaw said. "He, as he should have been, wasn't all that excited hearing about the trade because obviously people just automatically penciled in Arron as a starter and him as a backup." Foye was given the biggest workload of his career last season after Nate Robinson (knee) went down and didn't see any drop-off in output, but he's likely to move back to the bench. He's not shaping up to be a pick in standard fantasy leagues right now.
