Nuggets assign Quincy Miller to NBA D-League

Kevin Jairaj-US PRESSWIRE

Denver's second round pick, who has not appeared in a game this season, will get a chance to develop as a rookie in the NBDL.

The Nuggets announced on Wednesday that they would be assigning second-round pick Quincy Miller to the Iowa Energy of the NBDL.

Miller, whom the Nuggets drafted with the No. 38 overall pick in the 2012 Draft, has not played in a game this season, as he's been stuck on a deep, veteran roster on a franchise trying to make a playoff push in 2012-2013, not develop young players.

A skilled 6'10 210 forward, he averaged 11 points and 5 rebounds a game as a freshman on Baylor team that made the Elite Eight.

He was one of the top prospects in the country coming out of high school, but a devastating knee injury in his senior season robbed him of his explosiveness, and he was still recovering for most of his freshman season of college.

He'll need to add some weight to his frame to survive in the pros, especially if he ends up playing more as a power forward than a small forward, but he has an intriguing combination of height and skill, so this may not be the last you ever hear of him.
