According to @NBAonESPN the Denver Nuggets have agreed to terms with Shelden Williams and resigned Anthony Carter. I have not seen any info on the contracts yet. We know Carter agreed to his typical one year veterans minimum deal. Williams could have been signed with either a minimum contract or the biannual veterans exception which would be a two year deal starting anywhere up to $2.18 million.
Williams was a player I thought Denver should have looked into last season as he is a good defender and rebounder who could be had for cheap. His signing is good news from a defensive standpoint. However, he is a little undersized and while he adds some girth he does not have the length to handle the Lakers’ twin towers. Plus, when everyone is healthy he will be the fifth big and is not likely to see significant minutes. As with Harrington we will take a look at what Williams brings to the table in the coming days.
The Nuggets should just sign Carter to a six year veterans minimum deal because we know as long as he can run he will be a Nugget. With the growth of Lawson Carter should only see the court when either Chauncey or Ty are injured. However, as we saw last season his play suffers when asked to play too many minutes too many nights in a row.
