NBA Summer League 2014: Standout Players For The Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets have played three Summer League games already and currently hold a record of 1-2. After winning their first game against the Toronto Raptors, Denver has dropped two-straight to the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz. Denver will take on the D-League All-Stars Select tonight at 10:00 PM ET, 8:00 PM MT in the first-round of elimination play.

Now we take a look a three players that have stood out.

Quincy Miller, SF:

Miller will be entering his third season as a member of the Denver Nuggets and is only 21-years-old. Miller was catching everyone’s eyes the first two games where he scores 23 points and 26 points respectfully. During the last game against the Utah Jazz however, Miller couldn’t buy a shot as he finished the game shooting 3-for-17 with 7 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 assist. ‘Q’ looks to bounce back and redeem himself against the D-League All-Star squad tonight.

Current Summer League Stats: 18.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists.

Gary Harris, SG:

Harris was the Denver Nuggets first-round selection, 19th overall via the Chicago Bulls in this years NBA Draft. He put on a show during his first Summer League game, scoring 33 points on 10-of-17 shooting, including going 5-for-10 from behind-the-arc. Harris struggled in-game two against the Bulls but bounced back against the Jazz, shooting 6-for-20 from the field with 18 points, 2 rebounds, and 3 steals.

Current Summer League Stats: 20.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists.

Erick Green, PG/SG:

Green was Denver’s second-round selection in 2013 via the Utah Jazz as he spent last year playing overseas. The Virginia Tech product has been nothing but consistent in his three Summer League appearances this season. Green is shooting 52.6% percent from the field which is awfully impressive. Green shot 7-for-11, 7-for-14, and 6-for-13 respectfully in all three games. Denver currently has one spot open on the roster and I think this will be the guy to take it.

Current Summer League Stats: 15.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists.
