Nuggets make offer to Kleiza

DENVER -- The Denver Nuggets have made a qualifying offer to restricted free agent Linas Kleiza, who spent the past season in Greece.

Nuggets officials didn't release the terms of the offer Monday.

The 6-foot-8, 245-pound Kleiza averaged 8.3 points per game and 3.5 rebounds in 301 games over four seasons with the Nuggets from 2005-09. Denver acquired the forward in a trade with Portland in June 2005.
