Carter opens camp with Nuggets
Former University of Hawaii guard and NBA veteran Anthony Carter will try to win a job with the Denver Nuggets after signing with the team yesterday.
Carter was among four players added to the Nuggets' 18-player training camp roster, the team announced yesterday on its Web site.
The Nuggets open camp today in Durango, Colo.
Carter has played seven seasons in the NBA, and was a free agent after playing with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the last two seasons. He averaged 3.3 points and 2.2 assists in 45 games as a backup point guard last season. He also played for Miami and San Antonio earlier in his career.
» At El Segundo, Calif., the Los Angeles Lakers open training camp today, and the timing could be better.
First, three players including defending NBA scoring champion Kobe Bryant are recuperating from operations. And coach Phil Jackson is scheduled to undergo surgery to replace his right hip today instead of being on the sidelines when camp begins.
Nobody expressed much concern yesterday at media day, although the 61-year-old Jackson, as might be expected, admitted to being nervous.
"Of course, anybody would be," he told reporters. "I do know a number of success stories."
The Lakers visit Hawaii for training camp every other year and are expected back in 2007.
