  • Nuggets' Jalen Pickett: Recalled from G League

    The Nuggets recalled Pickett from the G League's Grand Rapids Gold on Monday.

    The Nuggets could be shorthanded with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (hamstring) questionable for Monday's game against the Bucks, so Pickett and fellow rookie Hunter Tyson will return from the G League to give Denver some extra depth at guard.

  • Nuggets' Jalen Pickett: Recalled from G League

    Denver recalled Pickett from the G League's Grand Rapids Gold on Tuesday.

    Denver's entire starting lineup is considered questionable to play Tuesday with an assortment of injuries, so Pickett could see some playing time against the 76ers. Pickett has averaged 6.0 minutes played across 15 appearances for Denver this season.

  • Nuggets' Jalen Pickett: Provides spark off bench for Gold

    Pickett collected 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and five assists over 23 minutes of Tuesday's 147-113 G League loss to Birmingham.

    Though Pickett saw a decreased workload Tuesday, he remained highly impactful and led the Grand Rapids reserves in points, rebounds and assists. Before the outing, Pickett was averaging 17.0 points, 10.0 assists and 4.1 rebounds over 35.3 minutes per game.

  • Nuggets' Jalen Pickett: Scores eight points

    Pickett totaled eight points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one steal across 19 minutes during Sunday's 121-109 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Pickett set multiple season highs Monday and made a positive impact off the bench for Denver during a rare loss. Reggie Jackson wasn't at his best, so this could be a position battle to watch until the Nuggets get Jamal Murray back from his hamstring injury.

  • Nuggets' Jalen Pickett: Logs extended minutes in win

    Pickett added five points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in a season-high 17 minutes Tuesday in a 111-108 win over the Clippers.

    With Reggie Jackson elevated to the starting role in Jamal Murray's (hamstring) absence, Pickett has seemingly assumed the backup point guard role, although he did not play in the last two games prior to Tuesday night. The 24-year-old is averaging 3.0 points, 0.8 rebounds, 0.4 assists and 0.2 steals in 5.2 minutes over five games this season, but expect his minutes to trend upward until Murray returns.

  • Nuggets' Jalen Pickett: Sees action in blowout

    Pickett accumulated two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and two rebounds across five minutes during Wednesday's 110-89 loss to Minnesota.

    Pickett made just his second appearance of the season in Wednesday's loss. While the rookie guard tallied his first two rebounds of 2023-24, he doesn't appear to be a regular part of Denver's rotation.

  • Nuggets' Jalen Pickett: Stuffs stat sheet

    Pickett tallied 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3PT, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, eight assists and three blocks over 31 minutes of Wednesday's 96-91 Summer League loss to the Jazz.

    Pickett showed off his versatility Wednesday, finishing with a team-high eight assists while connecting on 66.7 percent of his field goal attempts. He also proved to be a menace on the interior, rejecting three shots and pulling down a pair of offensive rebounds. Though Pickett is a unique prospect given his frame and passing touch, the Penn State product will likely need a year at the G League level to develop before having a shot at getting consistent NBA minutes.

  • Nuggets' Jalen Pickett: Drafted with No. 32 pick by Nuggets

    Pickett was selected by Denver with the No. 32 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.

    Coming off the franchise's first NBA Championship, Denver acquired an NBA-ready player in Pickett. He plays an unusual brand of basketball, operating at his best with his back to the basket, but he showcased an impressive array of skills, shooting 63/37/76 while dishing out a Big Ten-best 6.6 assists per game last season for Penn State. Though he enters the league at 23 years old, Pickett is a high-motor, high-IQ player who can cause matchup troubles on both ends of the floor.
