DENVER (AP) The Denver Nuggets have signed first-round pick Jamal Murray and agreed to a deal with veteran Mike Miller.

Murray was the seventh overall pick in the NBA draft last month. The shooting guard is expected to play a big part in turning around a franchise that's missed the playoffs the past three seasons. Murray is coming off a freshman season at Kentucky in which he averaged 20 points a game - the highest scoring average for a Wildcats player under coach John Calipari.

The 36-year-old Miller played only 373 minutes last season but served a valuable role as a mentor on a young squad. His deal reportedly is for two years.
