Comcast SportsNet Northwest is reporting the Denver Nuggets have had serious recent discussions with former 76ers general manager Tony DiLeo about their general manager vacancy.

DiLeo, who was named the Sixers GM less than a year ago, was let go when the organization hired Sam Hinkie as the president of basketball operations and general manager last month. DiLeo has spent 23 years in the Sixers organization.

The Nuggets position became available when Masai Ujiri left to take over the Toronto Raptors basketball operations.
