Nuggets to add Nick FazekasPosted by Inside Hoops
The Rocky Mountain News (Chris Tomasson) reports: Nick Fazekas, a 2003 Ralston Valley High School graduate, said Tuesday he will sign a nonguaranteed contract with the Nuggets before the start of next week’s training camp. The 6-foot-11 forward said he had “lots” of camp offers but believes he can make the Nuggets, who recently lost big men Marcus Camby and Eduardo Najera. “I’m confident I can,” said Fazekas, who will sign for the $711,517 minimum after averaging 4.1 points in 26 games last season as a rookie with Dallas and the Clippers. “I don’t want it to sound like I’m talking with an ego, but I feel I’m good enough to play in the NBA.” If Fazekas, who worked out at the Pepsi Center on Tuesday for a second straight day after having recent workouts with Cleveland, Dallas, Oklahoma City and San Antonio, doesn’t bring local flavor to the Nuggets, forward Michael Ruffin could. Ruffin, who also has been working out at the Pepsi Center, expects to attend training camp with Denver or Chicago.
