Nuggets set to make 8th NBA Summer League appearance

The Nuggets are among a record 24 teams that will compete in the 2012 NBA Summer League on the UNLV campus in Las Vegas from July 13-22.

After completing their first NBA season, forwards Kenneth Faried and Jordan Hamilton and point guard Julyan Stone are expected to be on Denver’s summer-league roster that will be led by Nuggets assistant Chad Iske.

“We’ve always had the philosophy that summer is the time to get better,” Iske said. “We have a great group of young guys who have proven that they are willing to put in the work and improve their game.”

The Nuggets have been a part of the Las Vegas competition since its inception in 2004, compiling a 23-11 record. Their .676 win percentage ranks second among teams that have played at least 10 games.

Denver will play five games in Las Vegas, with the full schedule and broadcast information on NBA TV set to be released at a later date.
