Mar­shall ready to help Nuggets ac­quire Irv­ing from Cava­liers, if he’s asked

The Denver Post - - DOVE VALLEY DAYS - — Nick Kos­mider, The Den­ver Post

Af­ter lend­ing a hand in the Nuggets’ pitch to free-agent power for­ward Paul Mill­sap, Bron­cos line­backer Bran­don Mar­shall may not be done help­ing Den­ver’s NBA fran­chise.

“I’m try­ing to work on my point guard skills,” Mar­shall said af­ter show­ing off the Nuggets socks, sent to him by the team, that he wore dur­ing prac­tice Sun­day. “I’m only tall enough to play point.”

The Nuggets made Mar­shall a cus­tom­ized No. 54 jer­sey in grat­i­tude for him join­ing their con­voy that met Mill­sap at his home near At­lanta on July 1, a meet­ing that led to Mill­sap sign­ing a three­year, $90 mil­lion deal with Den­ver.

Asked whether he could help the Nuggets bro­ker a deal for all-star point guard Kyrie Irv­ing, who has re­quested to be traded by the Cleve­land Cava­liers, Mar­shall said: “If they give me a call, I’ll fly out.”
