Christian Braun among Nuggets to attend minicamp arranged by Jeff Green

Denver Nuggets rookie Christian Braun was reportedly among the players that attended a team minicamp this week arranged by 14-year veteran Jeff Green, according to Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports.

Braun joined Green, Davon Reed, Zeke Nnaji and fellow rookies Peyton Watson and Jack White at the voluntary workout in Miami, Florida. Other players on the roster were invited but couldn’t attend due to prior engagements.

The session allowed the group of players the opportunity to get together and put in some work on the court. It was likely the rookies’ first time working out with Green, Reed and Nnaji, so the camp gave them a chance to get begin building chemistry with their new teammates.

The trio of rookies each turned in strong outings in the Las Vegas Summer League and each offered a glimpse of their potential. They each figure to have the opportunity to compete for minutes next season, which head coach Michael Malone is eager to watch unfold.

The gesture by Green to organize voluntary workouts with still over a month left until training camp begins certainly speaks volumes about his leadership and status on the team. The rookies should only stand to benefit by participating this week.
