According to THIS ARTICLE, the Denver Nuggets are poised to sign Erick Green to a multi-year contract. Drafted in the 2nd Round a year ago, his rights were immediately traded and he played abroad last season. At the Las Vegas Summer League this past month, Green averaged 16.6 ppg, 2.6 apg, and 1.2 spg in 5 games (27.6 minutes per game) for Denver.
Here’s a DIFFERENT ARTICLE where he talks about his time in Italy.
Green could become the first Hokie to play in the NBA since Zabian Dowdell back in 2011, though signing a contract won’t guarantee he makes the team. Deron Washington signed a two-year deal with Detroit back in 2009 but got cut before the start of the season and never played in a NBA regular season game. Let’s hope Erick fares better.
