DENVER -- The Denver Nuggets have re-signed Jameer Nelson to primarily serve as a backup and mentor for rookie point guard Emmanuel Mudiay.

In addition to signing Nelson to a multiyear deal Friday, Denver also brought back Darrell Arthur and Will Barton, general manager Tim Connelly announced.

Nelson, 33, played 34 games last season for Denver mostly as a backup to Ty Lawson, who was traded to Houston last month. Nelson is expected to play a similar role off the bench in 2015-16 after the Nuggets drafted Mudiay, 19, with the seventh overall pick.

Arthur averaged 6.6 points in 58 games for Denver. Barton thrived after he was acquired in a February deal with Portland. He averaged 11 points and 4.6 rebounds in 28 games for the Nuggets.

Nice. Hopefully Jameer can be a solid mentor for Mudiay.

This is a good move as long as Mike Malone doesn't decide Jameer needs to start/close games.

Hopefully there clearly will be a better option on the roster.

Now time to move Faried.
