Kennedy was released by the Nuggets on Saturday, Adam Mares of DenverStiffs.com reports. The Nuggets had 18 players on their training camp roster, and Kennedy was one of them competing for the 15th spot on the final roster. He ultimately did not make the cut. Kennedy has not made a team's regular season roster since the 2011-12 season.
Kennedy agreed Tuesday with the Nuggets on a three-year, partially guaranteed contract, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Kennedy becomes the 18th player on the Nuggets' training camp roster, meaning that he'll likely have to battle JaKarr Sampson, Axel Toupane and Joffrey Lauvergne for the final spot on the team once the regular season kicks off. The former St. John's standout went undrafted in 2011, but ended up making his NBA debut during the 2011-12 season with the Cavaliers, appearing in two games. He's since logged time in the D-League and with clubs in France, Israel, Russia and Germany, and recently led the Overseas Elite club to the $2 million prize in The Basketball Tournament. Kennedy will have a tough time distinguish himself in the Nuggets' deep corps of wings, but could end up making enough of an impression in training camp to land a gig with another NBA team.
The Mavericks waived four players Tuesday, as they begin to trim their training camp roster down in preparation for the start of the regular season. The four players waived are: forwards Renaldo Balkman, Devin Ebanks, guard D.J. Kennedy and center Fab Melo. Melo has now been let go twice this offseason.
The Cavaliers and Grizzlies agreed to a trade Wednesday that sent guard Jeremy Pargo and a second-round pick to Cleveland in exchange for guard D.J. Kennedy.
