NBA dream realized: Quincy Miller is officially a Nugget.
The Denver Nuggets have announced the official signing of forward Quincy Miller. The rookie out of Baylor averaged 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds for the Bears last season. He was selected by the Nuggets in the second-round with the 38th pick in the 2012 draft. I believed that the pick was a steal at the time and Miller has a bright future ahead of him. He's still gaining confidence after coming off an ACL tear suffered before his senior season in high school and has been trying to regain the form and promise that he showed early in his basketball life.
Reached for comment Miller's agent Dwon Clifton of Envision Sports Agency had the following to say about the signing. "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." Clifton confirmed that it's a three-year deal with the Nuggets and he was excited in the Nuggets' plans for his client. "(Quincy) has a chance to develop into a key component of what the Nuggets are doing."
Denver Stiffs learned yesterday, in a phone interview Clifton, that the Nuggets had tendered Miller a non-guaranteed contract. That tender insured that Miller's draft rights would remain with the Nuggets (Sept. 6th deadline) had the two parties not come to terms on a contract. Clifton was hopefully that a deal would be worked out in the proceeding days and Miller's signing became official this afternoon.
The Nuggets roster is now set at 15 players heading into training camp that begins October 2nd.
