Nuggets Rumors: G Lester Hudson Drawing Denver's Interest?

The Denver Nuggets have spent most of the 2012 NBA Free Agency period signing their own free agents to new deals, but they may still be looking for players to fill spots at the back end of the rotation. Andre Miller and JaVale McGee will certainly be the marquee signings for the summer, yet the Nuggets may still be targeting 27-year-old guard Lester Hudson for a backup role. The Nuggets and the Oklahoma City Thunder are both interested in signing Hudson, according to Sam Amico of Fox Sports:

Hudson's NBA resume is fairly lean (he has only played in 52 games over three seasons), but he has posted impressive numbers in limited action during NBA D-League action. He has averaged 16.3 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game over 25 D-League appearances, so perhaps George Karl and Masai Ujiri have seen something they've liked during that time.
