Could Peyton Watson be the easy answer to Denver’s problems?

In this episode, Ryan Blackburn opens up the Pickaxe and Roll podcast mailbag and answers questions from listeners about the Denver Nuggets. Is versatile wing/forward Peyton Watson going to benefit the most from Nikola Jokic this season, and what could Watson’s role look like next to Jokic?
