Nuggets waiving Nelson

The Denver Nuggets want to sign Richard Jefferson right now. They love old guards and Jefferson is a perfect fit. However, they have to make room on the roster.

And according to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, point guard Jameer Nelson is likely the odd man out.

“Denver will likely waive guard Jameer Nelson to create a roster spot for Jefferson, league sources tell ESPN,” Wojnarowski tweets.

This means that they have confidence in Jamal Murray and former high first-round pick Emmanuel Mudiay to run the show in the 35-year old’s absence.

Don’t worry about Nelson, he’ll find work shortly. A lot of teams could use a veteran point guard and hopefully he can join a contender.
