Nuggets Sign First-Rounder Jamal Murray

AUGUST 9th: The signing is official, the team announced.

JULY 19th: The Nuggets have reached an agreement with No. 7 overall pick Jamal Murray, as Malika Andrews of The Denver Post relays. Murray will make slightly under $6.6MM over the first two seasons, per the rookie scale, as our breakdown of salaries for 2016 first-rounder shows. The contract includes a team option on year three and four.

Murray may be the best shooter in his draft class, as I mentioned in his Prospect Profile. Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com had the combo guard ranked as the seventh-best prospect in the draft.

The 19-year-old averaged 20.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists during his lone season at Kentucky. He shot 40.8% from behind the arc and 50.2% from the field overall.
