Richard Jefferson has agreed upon a one-year, $2.3 million deal with the Denver Nuggets.
The Nuggets will likely waive Jameer Nelson to create a roster spot for Jefferson.
Josh Kroenke enjoys a strong friendship with Jefferson. The Nuggets feel Jefferson will give them depth at small forward and also be a strong veteran presence.
Jefferson averaged 20 minutes per game last season.
The Milwaukee Bucks also pursued Jefferson.
