The Denver Nuggets assigned rookie forward Quincy Miller to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Developmental League on Thursday. It will be the 20-year-old's second trip to Iowa this season. He averaged 14.0 points and 10.7 rebounds in three games for the Energy in his previous stint with the club.
The former Baylor Bear was the 38th-overall pick by the Nuggets in the 2012 NBA Draft, and averaged 6.8 points and 5.2 rebounds for the franchise's NBA Summer League team prior to his rookie season. While at Baylor, Miller was named the 2011-12 Big 12 Co-Freshman of the Year after averaging 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds.
Miller made his NBA debut on Dec. 16 against the Sacramento Kings and scored one point and one assist in five minutes on the court for the Nuggets. He has appeared in three games for Denver and is averaging 0.3 points, 1.0 assists and 0.3 rebounds in very limited playing time.
