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.
