The Nuggets and Nick Young decided to go separate ways as Young was waived early Sunday morning just 20 days after he originally signed.
The Nuggets were somewhat forced to waive Young as he was signed under an injury hardship which means that once one of the injured Nuggets players came back from injury, Young would be released. Millsap retuned to game action last night.
Nick Young has been waived by the Nuggets on Sunday after playing in only four games since being signed back on December 10th. With Gary Harris and Will Barton close to returning, Young will look for a new home.
It could be tough for Young to find a new spot unless perhaps the Rockets take a look at the veteran. Harris and Barton should be owned in all leagues as they are close to returning.
Nick Young has signed with the Denver Nuggets for the remainder of the year. To make room for Young, the Nuggets waived rookie guard Brandon Goodwin.
Nick Young's addition gives the Nuggets some wing depth given that Gary Harris will be sidelined for the next two to three weeks.
Nick Young has agreed to a deal with the Denver Nuggets on Monday as the team is without three key guards in Isaiah Thomas, Will Barton, and Gary Harris. The Nuggets were granted a injury hardship exception to make this signing.
Young could be worth a look for teams in desperate need of three-pointers especially with IT, Harris, Barton, and Paul Millsap all out. For now, leave him on the waiver wire.
Nick Young started and played 20 minutes in Saturday's Game 1 victory over the Pelicans. He shot 2-for-4 from the field, 2-for-4 from three-point range. Young finished with six points, one rebound, and one steal.
Nick Young was only put into the starting lineup as Stephen Curry was out and Steve Kerr wanted to go small. Don't expect Young to have any significant contributions in this series.
