Darrell Arthur wants to play at any position for the Denver Nuggets this season

Darrell Arthur, a 25 year old forward for the Denver Nuggets, says he wants to play at any position this season for his new ball club.

“If your offense can’t get going, there’s never an excuse for your defense to be off. I just want to come in and be a spark plug at any position they put me in and any role they put me in. If our first unit isn’t doing well and I’m coming off the bench, I want to be the guy to uplift the team and make plays defensively.” Arthur said on Nuggets.com

The Denver Nuggets are coming into the 2013-2014 seasons looking to better themselves from last seasons team. Following a team record of 57 wins, finishing third in the Western Conference, the Nuggets hope to finish stronger than they did last season, aiming for a championship.

Nuggets assistant Melvin Hunt added that Arthur can guard multiple positions in the post and can hit the pick and pop jumper.

A man looking to contribute to his team, will find it tough to pick up consistent minutes with the Nuggets having one of the deeper teams in the entire league.

But if he’s determined to be this spark plug, he should be able some floor time.
