Denver Nuggets sign veteran Austin Rivers to 10-day contract

DENVER (AP) The Denver Nuggets bolstered their injury-depleted backcourt by signing veteran guard Austin Rivers to a 10-day contract Tuesday.

Rivers is expected to be available when the Nuggets visit Portland on Wednesday night.

He brings size and shooting to Denver's backcourt, along with plenty of playoff experience - 45 games with the Clippers and Rockets. He is eligible for Denver's playoff roster because he wasn't on an NBA roster after April 9.
