Kennedy agreed Tuesday with the Nuggets on a three-year, partially guaranteed contract, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Kennedy becomes the 18th player on the Nuggets' training camp roster, meaning that he'll likely have to battle JaKarr Sampson, Axel Toupane and Joffrey Lauvergne for the final spot on the team. The former St. John's standout went undrafted in 2011, but ended up making his NBA debut during the 2011-12 season with the Cavaliers, appearing in two games. He's since logged time in the D-League and with clubs in France, Israel, Russia and Germany, and most recently helped lead the Overseas Elite club to the $2 million prize in The Basketball Tournament. Kennedy will have a tough time distinguishing himself in the Nuggets' deep corps of wings, but could end up making enough of an impression in training camp to land a gig with another NBA team.
