Veteran F Jefferson reportedly will sign with Nuggets

(TSX / STATS) -- The Denver Nuggets will sign forward Richard Jefferson and release veteran guard Jameer Nelson.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported late Monday that Jefferson and the Nuggets had agreed on a one-year, $2.3 million contract. The 37-year-old Jefferson, who spent the past two seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, will join a young nucleus of rising stars that include center Nikola Jokic and guard Gary Harris in Mile High City.

In a text message to the website The Vertical, Jefferson explained why he decided to join the Nuggets.
