The Nuggets have parted ways with a pair of camp invitees, announcing today in a press release that the team has waived Reginald Becton and Kyle Fogg. The cuts reduce Denver’s roster to 16 players.
Neither Becton nor Fogg was expected to make the Nuggets’ regular-season roster, so it comes as no surprise that they were released by the team. Fogg, who spent last season with the D-League’s Rio Grande Valley Vipers, appeared briefly in one game this month for Denver, while Becton, an Ole Miss product, didn’t play in the preseason.
The Nuggets now have one camp invitee remaining on the roster, in Damion James. He looks like the best bet to be released by opening night, to get Denver down to the regular-season roster maximum of 15. Quincy Miller, who has a partially guaranteed contract, is also a candidate to be cut, but I’d be surprised if the club gave up on the 2012 second-rounder so soon.
