Nuggets Ink Bones Hyland To Rookie Deal

Bones Hyland, taken with the 26th pick in last week’s draft, has signed a rookie contract with the Nuggets, according to the transactions page.

Hyland was a high-scoring guard who spent two years at Virginia Commonwealth. He earned Atlantic 10 Player of the Year honors as a sophomore, averaging 19.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.9 steals per game.

Most first-year players receive 120% of the rookie salary scale, so Hyland will likely earn a little more than $2MM in 2021/22 and can get up to $10.76MM over the next four years. We track all of this season’s rookie scale salaries here.
