JULY 7TH: The Nuggets have reached agreement with J.J. Hickson on a three-year, $15MM deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter). The forward is a client of Andy Miller, according to the Hoops Rumors Agency Database.
The 24-year-old has had multiple stops in the league during his short career and after he was cut loose by the Kings in March of last year, his stock didn't look so hot. However, he was picked up by the Blazers and as a featured player for the final quarter of the season, he averaged 15.1 PPG and 8.3 RPG.
He had another strong season in 2012/13, putting up 12.7 PPG and 10.4 RPG in 80 games, all of which he started.
