Quincy Miller slid all the way down the draft board to the Nuggets in the second round, after a promising but incomplete career at Baylor. With the amount of wing forwards the Nuggets have, whether he will be retained was a considerable question. For now, at least, the answer is yes.
Just so you get an idea of what we're talking about, here are players who could conceivably play the small forward position for the Nuggets: Andre Iguodala, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, Jordan Hamilton, Evan Fournier, Quincy Miller, Corey Brewer, Anthony Randolph. Most of these players will play a different position, but still. Look at that. Eight players.
When they play Houston, this could just be a small forward battle royale.
Anyway, Miller's got some talent, and if the other players slide to other positions, it's possible he could be retained. I'll be interested to see if his deal winds up guaranteed or not.
