DENVER, July 9, 2012 – Featuring second-year players Kenneth Faried and Jordan Hamilton, the Denver Nuggets have finalized their 13-man roster for the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

Faried, a member of the 2011-12 NBA All-Rookie First Team, and Hamilton will be joined by 2012 draft picks Evan Fournier, Quincy Miller and Izzet Turkyilmaz.

Rounding out the roster are center Solomon Alabi, guards Julyan Stone, Jorge Gutierrez, Demonte Harper and Derwin Kitchen and forwards Josh Carter, Gani Lawal and Chu Chu Maduabum.

Nuggets assistant Chad Iske will handle the coaching duties for Denver’s five-game schedule that starts Saturday against the Golden State Warriors.

The Nuggets have participated in Las Vegas since 2004 and have compiled a 23-11 record over that stretch. Their .676 winning percentage ranks second among teams who have played more than 10 games in the league’s seven-year history.

Altitude Sports & Entertainment will cover all available games, with an added 30 minutes of studio coverage before and after each game.
