The Denver Nuggets signed Jerrelle Benimon on Friday.

The 6-foot-8 power forward won Colonial Athletic Association player of the year honors in 2013 and 2014 while playing at Towson University and averaged 18.7 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists last season. But apparently, the biggest news about this is that Benimon is the first person from Fauquier County in Virginia to sign an NBA deal.rn

Jusuf Nurkic has signed a deal with the Nuggets.

Nurkic was the 16th overall pick in this year's NBA Draft, showing a lot of promise in his career overseas before coming state side. He is going to enter training camp as the team's No. 3 center, behind both Timofey Mozgov and JaVale McGee so unless he impresses early on, there is little chance he makes an impact in his rookie season.

Quincy Miller was carried off the court from Wednesday's Summer League game with a right leg injury.

Miller has been set ablaze during Summer League. He's still buried on the depth chart, however, and will likely only see the court in short spurts or in the event of injury.

Jusuf Nurkic has opted-out of his contract with Croatian club Cedevita and will play in the NBA with the Denver Nuggets this season.

He was the 16th overall pick taken by the Bulls in the 2014 draft and then traded to Denver for Doug McDermott, the 19th pick. Perhaps the Bulls would have made a different move had they known for certain that Nurkic would opt out of his contract. He's only 19-years-old but at 7 feet, 280 pounds, he's got some serious girth to have in the middle under the basket.

The Denver Nuggets have considered trading JaVale McGee and/or Wilson Chandler.

McGee missed the majority of last year with a stress fracture of his fibula. Chandler was already rumored to be apart of the trade package the Nuggets were willing to send to the T'Wolves to get Kevin Love. Last year Chandler averaged 15.8 points and 5.5 rebounds as a starter for Denver.

With the No. 11 pick of the NBA draft the Denver Nuggets select forward Doug McDermott from Creighton University.  

McDermott has been traded to the Bulls for the 16th and 19th picks in this year's draft. The trade open ups cap space for Chicago to pursue Melo or another All-Star caliber free-agent and in return get an outside shooter the desperately needed.

The Nuggets acquire Arron Afflalo from the Magic for Evan Fournier and a second round pick.

While it's a good deal for both the Nuggets and the Magic here, the real impact comes in Chicago where the Bulls were said to have been considering Afflalo instead of chasing Carmelo Anthony. The Bulls now seem like they'll be one of the big kids in the schoolyard when the fight for Anthony begins.

Darrell Arthur and Nate Robinson have exercised their contract options with the Nuggets.

Both Arthur and Robinson were solid contributors for the Nuggets last season and will once again be asked to be anchors off the bench. Both players hold lowend fantasy value until we see just now the Nuggets plan on building their lineup following last season's 36-46 finish.

The Denver Nuggets are offering Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler and 11th pick for Kevin Love and Kevin Martin.

Well this makes the Warriors job a little more difficult, now doesn't it? The Kevin Love sweepstakes will be abundant this summer, so be prepared to hear a lot of rumors heading closer in towards the NBA draft.
