The Nuggets first free-agent signing this summer is an important one, bringing back a familiar face. They completed one of their biggest offseason priorities Monday by signing to a deal with unrestricted free-agent point guard Jameer Nelson. Nelson has signed a 3-year, $13.5 million deal, according to an NBA source, bringing him back to Denver, which traded for the veteran midway through last season. The contract could result in him retiring with the Nuggets, the team that drafted him in 2004.

Nelson, 33, opted out of the last year of his contract, and the Nuggets want him back for his play on the court and his professionalism. . His daily example would be huge as the team grooms its 19-year old point guard Emmanuel Mudiay. According to those close to the situation, the Nuggets are a strong contender to retain his services. But for a player looking for a meaningful role, Nelson might have doubts. , The Nuggets are carrying multiple point guards — one guard under contract in Ty Lawson; Mudiay, the first-round draft pick who soon will be signed; and one on an unguaranteed contract, Erick Green.
