Nuggets Double-Dipping for Guards

(Boulder-CO) The Denver Nuggets are reportedly going to double-dip right before packing their bags and start heading for Durango. Seven-year veteran Anthony Carter and Elias Ayuso have both told the Rocky Mountain News that they are each expecting to sign one-year non-guaranteed contracts to play for the Nuggets. Carter said, “I'm trying to make a great impression. Hopefully, I can get that third spot.” Obviously Carter knows that the two point guards higher on the depth chart on this team are Andre Miller and Earl Boykins.

Carter is coming off a season in Minnesota where he only played in 45 games averaging thirteen minutes per. He posted stats of 3.3 points, 2.2 assists, and 1.4 rebounds. Pretty typical of a third option at point.

I can tell you now that Anthony Carter is a very sound 3rd point gaurd. He does what a point gaurd should (run the offense) and he plays tough D.
Great pick up.
