Nate Wolters signs contract to come to camp with Denver Nuggets
After bouncing between Milwaukee and New Orleans for a couple of NBA seasons, Nate Wolters spent last season playing in Turkey. But he’s looking for a way back to the NBA.
He’s hoping that road starts with a training camp contract with the Denver Nuggets, something first reported by Shams Charania of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports.

Denver has 15 players under guaranteed contract for next season already, so they are not bringing Wolters into camp with a real shot of making the roster. In addition, the Nuggets have Emmanuel Mudiay and Jameer Nelson at the point, plus they will give Jamal Murray some run there to see if is an NBA one. That pretty much rounds out the position.
But maybe Wolters can catch the eye of another team, then go to the D-League and work his way back to the NBA. This is a foot in the door.
