Wednesday provided some expected Nuggets information — as well as an exciting curveball — thanks to news that Denver locked down an old guard from the old guard, and their newest guard for the new guard.
Reserve point guard Andre Miller officially re-signed with the Nuggets, as expected, and the team also announced the signing of first-round pick Evan Fournier. The Nuggets bought out Fournier's overseas contract and signed Fournier to a multiyear deal, a source said, meaning the Frenchman will be in America this season, either as a Nugget or in the D-League. Fournier is only 19 and could be part of Denver's backcourt in the future. For now, the 6-foot-7 shooting guard will develop under Denver's watchful eye, beginning this weekend in the summer league. There was some discussion about whether Fournier would play overseas this season, but the buyout indicates, he's coming to America.
