Nelson has had a chance to speak with new Nuggets coach Mike Malone and, according to a source, is on board with the hire. Nelson is hoping to secure steady, significant playing time, which right now appears to be a stretch with three point guards on the roster — Ty Lawson, Mudiay and Erick Green. With Lawson’s future up in the air because of the possibility of a trade, playing time could open up quickly.

However, if he reunites with Kings coach George Karl in Sacramento then Lawson may be able to see into the future.
