Golden, 24, is 6-foot-10 and was waived two days ago. He went undrafted out of Richmond before signing on with Denver.
Before that, he spent time with the Hawks’ summer league squad, though his playing time was limited. Either way, it appears he is next headed for the Grand Rapids Gold, the Nuggets’ affiliate in the G League.
Golden’s father, Craig, played college basketball at both Fordham and Hartford, and his younger brother Bryce plays at Butler.
