The Denver Nuggets officially announced the signing of free-agent forward Jeff Green on Thursday.

Previous reports said Green, who turns 35 later this month, agreed to terms on a two-year, $10 million deal.

The Nuggets will be Green's 11th NBA employer since the Boston Celtics drafted him fifth overall in 2007.
