DENVER, Sept. 6, 2012 – The Denver Nuggets have signed second-round draft pick Quincy Miller to a multiyear contract, executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri announced today.

Miller, 6-9, 210, was the 38th overall selection in the 2012 NBA Draft after being named the 2011-12 Big 12 Co-Freshman of the Year at Baylor University. He averaged 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds in 37 games while helping the Bears reach the Elite Eight at the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

Dressed in Denver Nuggets workout gear, Josh Kroenke blends into the scene as a handful of players go through offseason drills on the Pepsi Center practice court.

Among the group are Andre Iguodala and fellow Denver newcomers Anthony Randolph and Evan Fournier.

Iguodala is an All-Star and newly minted Olympic gold medalist. Randolph is the fifth year forward still in search of the right fit for his enormous potential. Fournier is the first-round draft pick preparing for his rookie season.

With the 2011-12 season in the books and 2012-13 approaching, is taking a closer at the team’s primary rotation players and how they fared during a challenging 66-game schedule. Denver assistant coach John Welch was kind enough to provide candid assessments, which reflect the views of the Nuggets coaching staff as a whole.

Today’s featured player is forward Corey Brewer, who emerged as a key member of Denver’s second unit after being acquired from the Dallas Mavericks on Dec. 13, 2011.

During his two-plus seasons in Philadelphia, point guard Andre Miller marveled at the versatility of his young 76ers teammate Andre Iguodala.

In addition to averaging nearly 20 points per game, Iguodala could do it all - defend, run, rebound and create shots for others.

Four years later, not much has changed other than Iguodala’s age, resume and mailing address. Thanks to the twists and turns of the NBA, he and Miller will run the floor together again as members of the Denver Nuggets.
