Quincy Miller Signs Contract For NBA Call Up Chance In D-League

After a recent workout for the Los Angeles Lakers and considering overseas deals, free agent Quincy Miller has signed a contract in the NBA Development League, sources told RealGM.

Miller's agent, Jared Karnes, confirmed on Wednesday night that the 6-foot-10 forward has filed paperwork to enter the D-League.

Miller worked out for the Lakers last month and had been a leading candidate to earn a roster spot. The Lakers have been deliberate in deciding which wing player to sign onto the roster, continuing to closely monitor forward Roscoe Smith out of their D-League affiliate in Los Angeles, league sources said.

Miller, the 38th overall pick to Denver in 2012, spent two seasons with the Nuggets and averaged 4.5 points and 2.5 rebounds.

Miller, 22, was waived out of Denver's training camp in October.

Ivan Johnson Signs In NBA D-League

Two-year NBA veteran Ivan Johnson has signed in the NBA Development League, joining the waiver player pool, sources told RealGM.

Johnson had discussed deals overseas since becoming a final roster cut out of training camp with the Dallas Mavericks in October, but he had always leaned toward joining the D-League in hopes of an NBA call up.

Johnson, a 6-foot-8 forward, averaged 5.3 points and 2.5 rebounds in four preseason games for the Mavericks.

In two seasons with the Atlanta Hawks, Johnson was a contributing reserve on playoff teams while averaging 6.5 points and 3.9 rebounds in 125 total games from 2011-13. He played in the Chinese Basketball Association with Zhejiang a season ago.
