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.
