    Nuggets Working Toward Signing Joffrey Lauvergne

    Feb 3, 2015 10:34 PM

    The Denver Nuggets are making progress in signing Joffrey Lauvergne to a contract that would begin this season.

    Lauvergne was a second round pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

    Lauvergne cut ties with Khimki of Moscow on Tuesday, which frees him to sign with the Nuggets.

    The Nuggets still have "logistical hurdles," as one league source said, to clear before completing a contract agreement with Lauvergne.

    Petteri Koponen Hopes To Play In NBA By 15-16

    Sep 2, 2014 11:04 AM

    Petteri Koponen hopes to be playing in the NBA by the 2015-16 season. 

    Koponen said he intends to make the jump to the NBA after completing the final season on his contract with BC Khimki in Russia. 

    "I always said my dream is to play in the NBA," Koponen said. "Every summer we talk a little bit with Dallas to see what the situation is and what they think. I've got one more year left on my contract in Russia and then of course I would like to come over. I hope I get some options to go there and show I can play at that level."

    The Dallas Mavericks acquired Koponen's NBA rights in 2011 in a draft-night trade trade with Portland. He was selected by Philadelphia on behalf of the Blazers with the last pick of the first round in 2007.

    Team sources say that the Mavs have not ruled out importing Koponen themselves in the future, but there was no discussion of doing so for this season with four point guards already on the roster.
