Former Colorado State point guard Antwan Scott is joining the Denver Nuggets Summer League roster, according to the Coloradoan. Scott was sleeping at home when his agent started texting and calling him. When he finally returned the call his agent told him he made the Nuggets summer league roster.

A 6’2" point guard, Scott had to play more of the two-guard position once Gian Clavell went down with an injury. He stepped comfortably into the role, as he led the team with 16.4 points a game and set a school-record 96 made three-pointers.

Even though his steals and assists per game went down he believes his workout with the Nuggets showed enough of his others skills to prove that he has the talent to play at the NBA level:

"I showed that I can play the point. I was off the ball a lot this year at Colorado State, but I've played the one for most of my life, and I showed I can make plays all around," Scott said. "I don't know how much I'll get to play, but I just have to show that I'm a great teammate and a hard worker. I can be a point guard at this level and keep guys in front of me and be a defender."

Antwan will report to the Nuggets on Sunday and is set to join former MW players Josh Adams and Jimmer Fredette on the roster. Scott hopes to prove himself enough to catch on with a D-League team.
