Default Denver Nuggets Takes Close Look at Bonzi Wells

The Nuggets are making a strong push to fill their veteran shooting guard void with free agent Bonzi Wells, according to two NBA sources.

Although Wells is an unrestricted free agent, Denver might need a sign-and-trade to get Wells. Houston and Miami also are believed to have interest in the 6-foot-5, 210-pound swingman.

Nuggets officials do not comment on free agents.

Denver has two shooting guards, newcomers J.R. Smith, 21, and rookie Yakhouba Diawara. Wells would give the team a veteran presence. The eight-year NBA veteran averaged 23.2 points and 12 rebounds in the playoffs last season for Sacramento. During the regular season he averaged 13.6 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists. Wells also could fill in at small forward when Carmelo Anthony isn't in the game.

The Nuggets have an excess of big men on their roster and potentially could move one of them to make a sign-and-trade deal to get Wells.

The Nuggets' management team knows Wells. Vice president of basketball operations Mark Warkentien was with Portland when Wells played there. Nuggets assistant

coach Tim Grgurich also worked with Wells in Portland, and assistant John Welch worked with him in Memphis. Prior to last February's trade deadline, the Nuggets inquired about making a trade with the Kings for Wells.
In other personnel news, Golden State and Portland might have interest in a potential sign-and-trade for free-agent guard DerMarr Johnson, who played last season with Denver.
