Denver Nuggets Jusuf Nurkic's buyout with KK Cedevita looks complete

Jusuf Nurkic's at the NBA Draft. - Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Nuggets newest big man looks clear to join NBA ranks.

With the 16th overall pick in the June 26th NBA draft, the Nuggets selected Jusuf Nurkic. He had a fairly hefty buyout with his club, KK Cedevita, and it looks like the buyout has been completed and Nurkic's path to the NBA is now clear (tip of the hat to Denver Stiffs reader InboundingLobPass for making me aware of the Tweets from KK Cedevita).

From the KK Cedevita official Twitter account:

And from Nurkic's himself via Instagram and Twitter:

And from David Pick, a Senior Correspondent at Eurobasket.com:

So, what might Nurkic's contract with the Nuggets look like? From the folks at Basketball Insiders:

Draft Pick 1st Year 2nd Year 3rd Year Option 4th Year % Increase Qualifying Offer % Increase
16th $1.46M $1.53M $1.6M 53.4% 40.5%

Nurkic's still isn't likely to play on the Nuggets Summer League team, that begins play Sat. July 12th, but it would appear that he'll be here for training camp and on the roster next season. And that is good news.
