Chen Hsin-an cut by Nuggets

Chen Hsin-an was cut by the Denver Nuggets this morning, failing to make the Nuggets' 17-man summer league team roster. Chen will be back to Taiwan soon and return to the WUG NT training.

Chen make the first cut Wednesday, when the Nuggets trimmed their free agent camp roster from 34 to 23. Nuggets assistant Jarinn Akana said Chen has a strong body, show his potential to be an effective back-up 2 or 3, and was able to hold his own in the camp. However, with his limited experience in the upper competition, poor defense and the whole knowledge of the game, it was very difficult for Chen to make the roster.

Chen was cut by the Sacramento Kings in last year's pre-season training camp.
