Nuggets expected to waive Jameer Nelson

Denver Nuggets point guard Jameer Nelson is likely to be waived, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

What It Means:

Nelson started 40 games last season for the Nuggets, so his release comes as a suprise, but the team needs to clear a roster spot in order to sign Richard Jefferson.

In 75 games last season, Nelson averaged 9.2 points, 5.1 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 0.7 steals.
