EXCLUSIVE: Nuggets to sign Jason Hart...

Because the Rocky Mountain News has shut down, their reporters can't post stories to their website. Therefore, for the first (and probably last) time ever, Denver Stiffs will be breaking a Nuggets news story first.

According to Chris Tomasson, the Nuggets next week will sign point guard Jason Hart, multiple sources told the Rocky Mountain News on Friday. Hart has been bought by the Los Angeles Clippers for about $300,000. After he clears waivers, expected to be on Tuesday, he will sign a prorated minimum deal with the Nuggets.

Hart, making $2.5 million before his buyout, will give the Nuggets the third point guard they are seeking. Hart had to be waived by Sunday's deadline to be eligible for the playoffs with the Nuggets. Hart has played sparingly with the Clippers this season, averaging 2.3 points in 28 games. He played for Nuggets coach George Karl as a
Milwaukee rookie in 2000-01.

The Nuggets had been looking at Mateen Cleaves of the NBA Development League's Bakersfield Jam as a possible roster addition. But then the Hart situation materialized. The Nuggets are seeking a third point guard to take some of the burden off Chauncey Billups, 32, and Anthony Carter, 33.
