Rookie point guard Emmanuel Mudiay will start for the Nuggets to begin the season.
“We're going to have a 19-year-old starting point guard,” Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly said Monday.
Mudiay averaged 12 points and 5.8 assists for Denver during Summer League in Las Vegas.
The Nuggets, who were 30–52 last season, open the 2015–16 campaign on Oct. 28 in Houston.
