Toupane averaged 7.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in five Las Vegas Summer League games.
The Frenchman had an up-and-down week but finished strongly with a 10-point, eight-rebound, five-assist performance in the Nuggets' final game, a loss to the Suns. Toupane, who spent most of last season in the D-League, is currently signed to a non-guaranteed deal for the 2016-17, so he'll have to earn his way onto the final roster during training camp.
Sampson averaged 6.2 points and 2.2 rebounds in four Las Vegas Summer League games.
Sampson came off the bench to average only 13.0 minutes per game, preventing him from making more than a nominal impact. His highlight of the week came in a win over the Grizzlies in which he scored 16 points to go with three assists in 16 minutes. As training camp approaches, Sampson will compete for a roster spot with the Nuggets, but at this point he may be on the outside looking in.
Hernangomez will play for the Nuggets during the 2016-17 season, Spanish magazine Gigantes del Basket reports.
It wasn't certain if Hernangomez would immediately join the Nuggets following his selection with the 15th overall pick in June's draft, but he'll turn down lucrative offers from several European clubs in order to start his NBA career. Though the rookie is coming off a strong summer league showing during which he averaged 10.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 26.8 minutes per game while shooting 54.5 percent from the floor, he'll be hard pressed to see time in deep Nuggets rotation. At the very least, Hernangomez will find himself behind Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur on the depth chart at power forward when training camp commences in the fall.
Murray signed his rookie contract with the Nuggets on Tuesday, BSN Denver's Harrison Wind reports.
He's the second of the Nuggets' three first-round picks to sign, leaving Juan Hernangomez as the lone holdout. Murray, the seventh overall pick in June's draft, just wrapped up a productive Las Vegas Summer League in which he averaged 19.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. With the Nuggets reiterating that Gary Harris is their starting shooting guard alongside second-year point guard Emmanuel Mudiay, Murray figures to serve as the Nuggets' first guard off the bench during his rookie season.
Murray averaged 19.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.4 assists in five Las Vegas Summer League contests.
Murray got off to a sluggish start, scoring just 10 points on 7-of-23 shooting through his first two games, but he put up 29, 20 and 29 points over his final three contests, respectively. The Kentucky product shot a respectable 42.5 percent from the floor but knocked down only 27.6 percent of his threes, a number that's sure to rise as he gains confidence at the pro level. For a non-playoff team, the Nuggets enter 2016-17 with considerable depth, but Murray figures to find his way into consistent minutes at both backcourt spots.
