(8/6/2014) The Nuggets inked both of their first-round picks to rookie-scale deals last week, as the team announced the signings of center Jusuf Nurkic and guard Gary Harris.
Kurkic was considered a possible draft-and-stash option, but the 19-year-old out of Bosnia opted to head to the NBA after becoming the 16th overall pick. Harris was taken 19th overall after a two-year career at Michigan State, which saw him averaging 16.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.
