Carter re-signs with Nuggets
DENVER -- The Denver Nuggets, who lost Dahntay Jones and Linas Kleiza to free agency, have fulfilled one of coach George Karl's offseason wishes with the re-signing of backup point guard Anthony Carter.
"AC's loyalty to [owner] Stan Kroenke, George Karl and Denver is exemplary, rarely seen in professional athletics today," Nuggets executive Mark Warkentien said.
Carter has averaged 5.2 points, 4.1 assists and 2.2 rebounds over his 10-year NBA career with Miami, San Antonio, Minnesota and Denver.
In 150 games over the previous three seasons with the Nuggets, he has averaged 6.4 points and 5.1 rebounds. He averaged 4.7 assists in 22.9 minutes last season.
