Funny how Billups was released by that same Nuggets team way back when. And is this McDyess' third time around with Denver? Or the second time only?

As hoops alluded to, it's done strictly for cap space at the end of the year. Iverson provides a scoring punch and let's the remain competitive in the East. But the writing is on the wall, they won their championship and were a dominate team in the east for the better part of the decade. Time to re-up and with players like Amir Johnson, Maxiell and Stuckey it's moving in the right direction.
