Nuggets Re-Sign Abdul-Wahad, Bowen
Aug. 02, 2000
DENVER (AP) _ The Denver Nuggets on Tuesday re-signed guard Tariq Abdul-Wahad and forward Ryan Bowen.
Terms of the deals were not disclosed, but a published report last week said the 6-foot-6 Abdul-Wahad would receive a six-year deal worth $5 million.
Abdul-Wahad, acquired from the Orlando Magic on Feb. 1, averaged 8.9 points and 3.5 rebounds in 15 games last season. He missed all but one of the final 23 games because of an injured left wrist.
Abdul-Wahad's name had been mentioned in a rumored three-way trade among the Nuggets, Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers, but it did not materialize.
The 6-7 Bowen averaged 2.5 points and 2.2 rebounds in 52 games as a rookie last season.
