      Kostas Papanikolaou: Signing with Nuggets

      Papanikolaou is expected to sign with the Nuggets on Thursday, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. The Nuggets released guard Erick Green on Thursday, clearing a roster spot, which they're expected to use on Papanikolaou, who was with the team briefly in the offseason. The Greece native came over from Houston in the Ty Lawson deal, but the Nuggets waived him in late-September prior to camp. With the Nuggets currently dealing with a slew of frontcourt injuries, Papanikolaou will return and could step into a meaningful role, at least in the short-term. He appeared in 43 games for Houston last season, averaging 4.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 18.5 minutes.
