Kevin Fletcher Survives First Round of Cuts
Former CU-Colorado Springs standout Kevin Fletcher made the first round of cuts at the Denver Nuggets summer league camp on Tuesday. The Nuggets cut the roster from 34 players down to 23.
Fletcher, who played for CU-Colorado Springs from 1999-2002, earned the right to participate in the camp after being one of four players taken from over 200 at an open tryout held at the Pepsi Center on June 28.
Fletcher is the school's all-time leading shot blocker and ranks in the top ten in both scoring and rebounding.
Some of the other players participating in the camp include first round draft pick Carmelo Anthony, Nene, Nikoloz Tskitishvili, Rodney White, and Junior Harrington.
The Nuggets will practice twice a day from Wednesday to Friday and once on Saturday on the practice court at the Pepsi Center before departing for Los Angeles to begin summer league play.
One final cut will be made before the team travels to Los Angeles, either Fletcher or fellow open tryout invitee Pierre Wooten, is guaranteed to make the Nuggets final summer league roster.
