Nuggets May Amnesty Chris Andersen


It may not come as a surprise, but the Denver Nuggets are considering using their amnesty clause on their longest tenured player.

Chris Andersen, who is currently in his tenure with the Nuggets and is going into his 11th year in the NBA, may have played his final game for Denver.

Gerry Woelfel from the Milwaukee Journal Times tweeted earlier that the Nuggets brass is considering using the amnesty clause.

Andersen was a pleasant surprise for the Nuggets after they signed him to a minimum contract in 2008, Denver even rewarded Andersen with a $21.1 million, 5-year contract.

While the move doesn’t do a lot for Denver financially, it frees up a roster spot for the Nuggets. With Andersen the Nuggets have 14 players on their roster, leaving only one roster spot available with Denver both wanting to sign rookie Quincy Miller and re-sign JaVale McGee.
