08:05 AM ET 12.09 | Seven feet and counting? Kosta Koufos may yet be done growing. The 7-foot Koufos, who is 22, was told by a doctor this offseason that his growth plates were still open. And while he isn't taller than he was last season, the possibility remains that Koufos could inch higher. Or broader. Koufos, a three-year veteran, said this morning that his wingspan is now 7-7. It may all be extremely relevant to the Nuggets this season, as coach George Karl said this week that he expects Koufos to be part of the rotation. It's a role that would grow if Nene leaves Denver as a free agent. "I'm going to maximize any opportunity I get," Koufos said. "I'll work hard every day, and stay focused."

I still remember my sophomore year at OSU when I was squatting in a gym at OSU and out of the corner of my eye I noticed a guy who put the bar on the top rack at the station next to mine; I looked over and it was Koufos. I was disappointed he was a one-and-done for the Buckeyes, but I'm glad to see he's in the league and all.
