Denver Nuggets Training Camp 2011: 11 Players Report For First Day Of Practice

As Denver Nuggets training camp got underway on Friday afternoon, 11 players were there to participate, according to Benjamin Hochman: Chris Andersen, Kenneth Faried, Danilo Gallinari, Jordan Hamilton, Al Harrington, Kosta Koufos, Ty Lawson, Andre Miller, Timofey Mozgov, Cory Higgins and UTEP's Julyan Stone.

Among the first-year players are 2011 NBA draft picks Faried and Hamilton, who just signed deals with the team on Friday. Higgins, a camp invitee, averaged 16.1 points for the Colorado Buffaloes last season. Stone is a versatile guard with good size, though he wasn't much of a scorer at the college level.

Notably absent: Nene Hilario, who is exploring a number of options through free agency and is unlikely to return to the Nuggets.
