Nuggets G/F Andre Iguodala met the Denver media for the first time Thursday during an introductory press conference at Pepsi Center. He was joined by Nuggets president Josh Kroenke and executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri.

The following is a transcript of their comments:


Nuggets President Josh Kroenke

“Welcome everybody. Obviously we made a trade last week. I know we have a few fans in here, so welcome to you guys as well. Hopefully you guys are as excited as we are.

Talk about making a summer splash.

Already a perennial playoff team, the Denver Nuggets got even better last week when they took part in the four-team, 12-player mega-trade that also included the Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic and Philadelphia 76ers.

The deal brought All-Star and Olympian Andre Iguodala from Philadelphia to Denver and sent Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington and two future draft picks or Orlando.
