Koufos will not play for the Greek national team this summer at FIBA Eurobasket 2013, the Denver Post reports. (Rotowire.com)
Recommendation: Instead, Koufos is opting to spend the summer in Denver in order to work with the Nuggets' coaching and training staff. In 2012-13, he easily posted the best season of his five-year career, averaging 8.0 points (on 58.1 percent shooting), 6.9 boards, and 1.3 blocks in 22.4 minutes. While it's tough to project much more output with JaVale McGee and Timofey Mozgov present in Denver's frontcourt, Koufos will likely earn more minutes due to his ability to do all the little things.
