Monte Morris has had a big week!

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Houston Rockets Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

It has been a big week for former Cyclone basketball players, and it only got bigger this evening.

Monte Morris has signed a 3-year deal with the Denver Nuggets. The deal is worth 4.8 million, and the first two years of the deal are guaranteed. This is certainly a major move from his two-way contract he previously had with the Nuggets.

Morris averaged 17.8 points per game with 6.5 assists last year in the G-League. He also averaged 17.5 points and 6.3 assists during this past summer league for the Nuggets. It certainly was enough to get a push up to a standard deal, he will have to battle for time behind Isaiah Thomas and Jamal Murray.
