The Denver Nuggets have waived veteran NBA forward Josh Childress, league sources told Def Pen Hoops. The move brings the Nuggets roster count down to 17 players.

Childress also confirmed the transaction in a text message when reached Wednesday night.

Childress, 34, was signed to a training camp deal after he played in Ice Cubes BIG3 league this summer. He plans to continue playing basketball regardless of being waived by the team.

For Childress, the opportunity of attending camp with the Nuggets has helped him generate interest overseas, two sources with knowledge of his situation told Def Pen Hoops. That was a goal for Childress entering camp. Both he and the team recognized coming in that he would likely be waived eventually, league sources said.

The Nuggets have 15 players on guaranteed contracts. Childress has made NBA stops with Atlanta, Phoenix, Brooklyn, and New Orleans.
