Josh Kroenke is convinced that the Denver Nuggets will succeed in re-signing Andre Igoudala.

''I think 100 percent,'' Kroenke said of the prospect of inking Igoudala. ''I had a good conversation with his agent last week. Andre is somebody we definitely want to bring back, and Andre is aware of our intentions to bring him back as well.''

Tim Connelly, formally introduced as Nuggets general manager on Thursday, declared re-signing Igoudala is his top priority.

"The last guy we talked to before coming in for this press conference was Andre,'' Connelly told reporters. ''He's such a pro that he's out there (on the court) working out.''
