With the summer free agent frenzy finally quieting down, Nuggets Ink podcast host Matt Schubert and beat writer Mike Singer check back in to talk about an earth shattering two weeks in the NBA. Among the topics: * The first Friday of the NBA Summer League was filled with tremors, literal and metaphorical. Where does everyone stand in the wake of the aftershocks? Are the Nuggets still one of the Western Conference's top contenders? * After standing pat for the first two weeks of free agency, the Nuggets made their big offseason addition trading for Jerami Grant. How does the versatile forward fit in with the front office's short- and long-term plans? What sort of impact should fans expect from the acquisition? * Jamal Murray got paid — 5 years, $170 million paid. Denver is now fully committed to its big two of Murray and Nikola Jokic. Where do those two rank in this NBA Jam era of team building? * Did someone say Bradley Beal trade? What would the Nuggets need to offer to entice the Wizards to part with their star shooting guard? How would he fit alongside Jokic and Murray?
