Christian Braun among Nuggets to attend minicamp arranged by Jeff Green
Denver Nuggets rookie Christian Braun was reportedly among the players who attended this week’s minicamp 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 begin building chemistry with their new teammates.
The trio of rookies turned in strong outings in the Las Vegas Summer League and each offered a glimpse of his potential. Each figures to compete for minutes this season, which head coach Michael Malone is eager to watch unfold.
The gesture by Green to organize voluntary workouts with more than a month left until training camp begins certainly speaks volumes about his leadership and status on the team. The rookies should benefit by participating this week.
