Nuggets sign Howard Eisley for rest of season
The Denver Nuggets have signed G Howard Eisley for the remainder of the season, team General Manager Kiki Vandeweghe announced today.
Eisley, 6-2, 180, signed the first of consecutive 10-day contracts with the Nuggets on March 3. He has appeared in six games for Denver this season, averaging 2.0 ppg and 1.8 apg in 7.8 minutes.
For his career, Eisley has averaged 6.7 ppg, 3.6 apg and 1.7 rpg over 12 seasons with Minnesota, San Antonio, Utah (twice), Dallas, New York, Phoenix and the L.A Clippers.
InsideHoops.com Editor Says: The Nuggets looked at the available free agent point guards and figured none were going to be substantially better than Eisley. He's been around for a few weeks, so they figured they might as well keep him. He'll play very limited minutes.
