DENVER – The Denver Nuggets have cut rapper Master P from their summer league team.

Percy “Master P” Miller, CEO of No Limit Records, was among players trimmed from the team before practice Monday.

“(Miller) thanked me and was very respectful,” summer league coach Scott Brooks told The Denver Post. “I was impressed. I heard some questionable stories from other teams. He worked hard. But he even knew it and said he wasn’t in shape.”

Open-tryout participants Charles Mason, Rick Poole and Corey Williams also were cut, but open tryout players Tyree Jones and Deon Williams, both guards, made the summer team.

Joining the Nuggets on Monday was new assistant coach Michael Cooper, a former star and assistant coach for the Los Angeles Lakers before becoming head coach of the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA in 2000.

“I never left the game,” Cooper told the Rocky Mountain News. “I was just on the women’s side professionally, but it is nice to be back in the league that you kind of helped generate excitement (for) during the ’80s.”
