Quincy Miller Signs 3-Year Contract With Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets signed second-round draft pick Quincy Miller to a three-year deal today, Denver Stiffs reports. The 6'10" product of North Chicago, Illinois, averaged 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds in his one season at Baylor, earning co-Big 12 Freshman of the Year honors. He tore his ACL during his senior season of high school, and has been slowly recovering from that injury ever since. The Nuggets took a chance on a return to the form that made him a five-star recruit out of high school.

When reached for comment, Miller's agent conveyed the following:

"We're really happy with the way things have gone (with the Nuggets organization)," Clifton said. "Quincy is so grateful for this chance to prove himself."

"(Quincy) has a chance to develop into a key component of what the Nuggets are doing."

With Miller's signing, the Nuggets' 15-man roster is set for training camp in October.

Nuggets Tender Offer To Quincy Miller, Per Agent

The Denver Nuggets have tendered a non-guaranteed contract to second-round pick Quincy Miller, Miller's agent Dwon Clifton told Nate Timmons of Denver Stiffs.

By offering a contract to Miller, the Nuggets retained the rights to the rookie, whom Denver chose out of Baylor with the 38th overall pick in the 2012 NBA drat. At this point, it's up to Miller and his agent to decide whether to accept the deal and begin his career with the Nuggets, or to restart the negotiation process in search of a guaranteed deal.

The Nuggets have one spot available on their roster, and Miller appears to have enough upside to have an inside track at the job, provided he takes the offer. The 19-year-old forward averaged 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds as a freshman during the 2011-12 season, sharing Big 12 Freshman of the Year honors with Oklahoma State's Le'Bryan Nash.
