The 1999-2000 NBA season was the Nuggets' 24th season in the National Basketball Association, and 33rd season as a franchise.[1] It was their first year at the Pepsi Center. During the offseason, the Nuggets acquired Ron Mercer from the Boston Celtics, and signed free agent George McCloud. With Dan Issel back as head coach, the Nuggets had a solid nucleus of second-year star Raef LaFrentz, Antonio McDyess and Nick Van Exel with a 17-15 record to start the season. However, the Nuggets would struggle and hover around .500 for most of the first half of the season. At the trade deadline, Mercer was dealt along with Chauncey Billups to the Orlando Magic for Tariq Abdul-Wahad and Chris Gatling. The Nuggets finished fifth in the Midwest Division with a 35-47 record. First round draft pick James Posey made the All-Rookie Second Team. Following the season, Bryant Stith was traded to the Boston Celtics, and Gatling was dealt back to the Miami Heat, who then sent him to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
