WEDNESDAY, 10:55 am: The Nuggets officially announced the signing of Gee on their Twitter feed.
TUESDAY, 6:54 pm: The Nuggets are finalizing a deal to add Alonzo Gee to the team, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports (Twitter link). Denver has only 14 players on the books after waiving Jarnell Stokes earlier today.
Gee spent last season with the Pelicans and nearly made New Orleans’ roster this year before being waived right before the season started. He’s previously played for Denver during the 2014/15 season, though he was traded mid-season to the Blazers in the Aaron Afflalo deal.
Wing depth is an area of concern for the Nuggets. Will Barton remains sidelined because of an ankle injury and his absence has led to Jameer Nelson playing alongside Emmanuel Mudiay in the starting lineup. Earlier today, we learned that Denver could be without Gary Harris for up to four weeks because of a foot injury.
