The Denver Nuggets are actively pursuing free agent forward Alonzo Gee, sources with knowledge told RealGM.
Despite dealing with the adversity of three offseason trades and his release from the Sacramento Kings on Thursday, Gee has worked out diligently on his overall game, including improving his jump shot, daily training sessions and getting into the best basketball shape of his career.
Denver has expressed interest in Gee with a belief that his abilities fit their system, a five-year NBA veteran who would benefit the Nuggets with athleticism and defense in camp. Gee cleared NBA free agency waivers on Saturday.
In almost four seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Gee, 27, averaged eight points and four rebounds -- with consecutive years of scoring over 10 points per game.
As an undrafted player in 2009, Gee signed contracts with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Washington Wizards before securing a roster spot with Washington.
