Nuggets sign Benimon

According to Shams Charania of RealGM.com, the Denver Nuggets have signed undrafted rookie Jerrelle Benimon out of Towson. The deal is for two years and is partially guaranteed. This brings the number of players on the Nuggets’ roster to 16, which is allowable over the summer, however the team must have the final roster trimmed to 15 by the start of the regular season. Given Quincy Miller and Erick Green also have non-guaranteed contracts, there might be a chance Benimon snags the last roster spot at the expense of those two if he impresses enough over the next few months.
