There was only one job that Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly would leave for, and it came calling. But after a weekend spent contemplating a possible future with the Washington Wizards, Connelly will remain in Denver to continue working on what he started, according to ESPN. Connelly, a Baltimore native, met with the Wizards on Friday about their vacancy at the head of their front office. A process that was expected to be wrapped up quickly came to its conclusion on Monday morning. Connelly had family matters to consider when weighing whether to take the Wizards job, but the promise of what he has built in Denver was evidently too alluring to leave. The architect of the Nuggets’ best season in a decade had invested too much not to see it through. Behind Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray, both draft picks made by Connelly, the Nuggets won 54 games, reached the playoffs for the first time in six years and won their first postseason series in a decade. The progress the Nuggets saw under Connelly and coach Michael Malone brought them to the doorstep of the Conference Finals before they lost Game 7 at home to the Portland Trail Blazers just over a week ago. Not to mention, the situation in Washington, with bad contracts and a bleak future, wasn’t nearly as promising as what the Nuggets have built. [related_articles location=”right” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] RELATED: Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly meets with Wizards Connelly has a good relationship with Nuggets owner Josh Kroenke and is close with the rest of his front office staff, including GM Arturas Karnisovas and assistant GM Calvin Booth. Kroenke didn’t want to let him walk, according to ESPN. Few teams in the NBA have a better blend of promising players, seasoned veterans and established stars than the Nuggets do. That’s a tribute to Connelly, whose defining move came when he selected Jokic with the 41st pick in the 2014 draft. Even Connelly admits that there was luck involved in finding Jokic, who has become Denver’s franchise cornerstone. There were other pivotal moves – drafting Gary Harris in that same draft, snatching Murray two years later – that preceded their current run of success, and those undoubtedly drove Connelly’s stock up. But with last year’s first-round pick Michael Porter Jr. expected to make his professional debut at Summer League and the promise of this year’s postseason run fresh in everyone’s minds, Connelly couldn’t leave one of the most enviable and stable situations in the league.
