Forward Torrey Craig has agreed to a two-way contract with the Denver Nuggets, according to multiple reports.
Craig had a strong showing with the Nuggets at this year’s NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, averaging 11.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in six games. He had his best game in the team’s win over the Houston Rockets with 27 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks. He also displayed flashes of his defensive prowess in the summer showcase, guarding multiple positions and averaging 0.8 steals and a block per contest.
He was named the 2016-17 National Basketball League’s (Australia) defensive player of the year with the Brisbane Bullets. Craig last played for the Gold Coast Rollers of the Queensland Basketball League.
NBA teams are permitted to have two “two-way” players on their roster at any given time in addition their 15-man regular season roster. The contract means Craig will spend time with both the Nuggets and in the G-League. Two-way deals restrict players from spending more than 45 days with their NBA team.
