After putting up career-best statistics last season, Kosta Koufos has decided to spend the summer working out with Nuggets coaches and strength staff, instead of playing for the Greek national team.

The center is an Ohio native, but due to his Greek roots, he’s previously played for that nation’s team. For Denver last season, the 24-year-old center averaged 8.0 points per game and 6.9 rebounds, starting for a squad that won 57 games.

He will spend the summer working on his game with numerous coaches, and his body with strength and conditioning coach Steve Hess. Koufos will spend time in Denver, as well as Cleveland and Canton, Ohio.
