Guard Monte Morris has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $4.8 million contract, which converts his two-way contract to a standard contract, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

Morris played significant minutes in the NBA G League last season, performing well enough to where he was called up to play as the team’s backup point guard at one point after former backup Emmanuel Mudiay was traded to the New York Knicks. His success in the G League, summer league, and flashes in his little time in the NBA have proven worthy of a three-year contract that includes two years guaranteed with the Nuggets

With the recent signing of Isaiah Thomas, Morris will likely slide in as the team’s third-string point guard behind Thomas and Jamal Murray. Nonetheless, it’s not often that a late second-round pick secures a multi-year deal with a team, and now Morris will have the opportunity to put his skills on display for the rest of the league to see.

With this signing, the Nuggets currently have all 15 roster spots filled, but now have an open two-way slot to sign another prospect prior to the season.
