Gee's 10-day contract with the Nuggets expired Wednesday, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. For the time being, Gee will return to the free agent pool, but it's possible that Denver could bring him back on a second 10-day deal in the near future. The Nuggets needed to free up a roster spot after acquiring Mo Williams in a cap-related move Tuesday night, but Williams will be released as soon as the trade becomes official, so Denver will again have an open roster spot. Gee would likely be the top candidate to fill that roster void, though the team is yet to offer any comment. The 29-year-old Gee, who was waived by the Nuggets on Jan. 6 before signing a 10-day deal two days later, has appeared sparingly in 13 games on the season.
Gee signed a 10-day contract with the Nuggets on Sunday. Gee was waived by the Nuggets last week, but the team decided to bring him back on a short-term deal with fellow wing Gary Harris dealing with a groin injury. He will provide depth and does not figure to jump into the rotation despite Harris' setback.
Gee was waived by the Nuggets Friday. Gee was signed by Denver less than two months ago and appeared in just 13 games for the team, averaging 0.8 points and 1.1 rebounds in 6.8 minutes per game. The seventh year guard has played in just four games since the start of December and his absence shouldn't impact Denver's minutes distribution at all.
Gee played four minutes in a 127-99 loss to the Spurs on Thursday, missing his only shot and grabbing one rebound. With rookies Malik Beasley and Juan Hernangomez on D-League assignments and Kenneth Faried (back) sitting out, Gee was active for a game for one of the few occasions of late, and was able to log some run during garbage time. Unless the Nuggets are besieged by injuries on the wing, this will probably be the extent of Gee's court time when he suits up.
Gee (coach's decision) was inactive during Monday's 117-107 win over the Mavericks. Gee appeared in nine of the Nuggets' subsequent 10 games after signing with the club Nov. 16 amid a rash of injuries on the wing, but with the team now back to full health, he's been unsurprisingly dropped from the rotation. Given the Nuggets' limited financial commitment to Gee and his low upside, it wouldn't be surprising if he were waived at some point later this season in order for the Nuggets to address their depth at another position.
