Nuggets set to begin summer league practices at Pepsi Center
After workouts in Denver, team will head to Las Vegas
Led by third-year forward Quincy Miller and incoming first-round draft pick Gary Harris, the Denver Nuggets are gearing up for their appearance at the Samsung NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
The Nuggets are set to hold practices Tuesday and Wednesday at Pepsi Center before heading to Las Vegas. Denver opens its summer schedule Saturday against the Toronto Raptors.
The summer-league roster has yet to be finalized, but the Nuggets are hoping Miller and Harris will be joined by center Jusuf Nurkic, the 16th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Harris was selected 19th overall.
Erick Green, a second-round in pick 2013, also is scheduled to be on the roster. He spent the 2013-14 season playing for Montepaschi Siena in Italy.
The Nuggets have participated at the summer league in Las Vegas since its inception in 2004.
