  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Impresses yet again

    Tyson tallied 31 points (11-13 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 27 minutes during Friday's 112-81 Summer League win over Miami.

    Tyson and Peyton Watson have looked dominant for the Nuggets in Summer League. Denver shut down Watson prior to Friday's game, leaving Tyson to get all the shots he could handle. Tyson is making a strong case to soak up some of the minutes that Jeff Green and Bruce Brown left behind.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Double-doubles Wednesday

    Tyson tallied 19 points (5-12 FG, 3-9 3PT, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one steal over 31 minutes of Wednesday's 96-91 loss to Utah in Summer League.

    Though Tyson stands at just 6-foot-8, he filled the role of a big man Wednesday, pulling down a game-high 12 rebounds and getting to the line six times. The Clemson product also produced 19 points, trailing only Julian Strawther (21 points). Tyson has turned some heads during Summer League and could sneak into some early playing time come the regular season.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Scores 21 off bench

    Tyson finished with 21 points (7-13 FG, 3-7 3PT, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 27 minutes of Friday's 92-85 Summer League loss to the Bucks.

    The 37th pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, Tyson came off the bench firing from everywhere and had 16 points by halftime. If Friday was any indication, it's easy to see why he got three years of his salary guaranteed by the Nuggets. He'll need to keep his foot on the gas if he has any hopes of cracking Denver's rotation for the upcoming season, as the Nuggets will be looking for guys to step up with Bruce Brown and Jeff Green no longer around.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Inks deal with Denver

    Tyson and the Nuggets agreed Wednesday on a four-year deal worth up to $7.7 million, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    According to Singer, the first three years of the deal are fully guaranteed, while the Nuggets hold a $2.41 million club option for the fourth year in 2026-27. The guaranteed portion of the deal in particular is fairly atypical for a player selected in the second round of the draft, but the Nuggets evidently envision the 23-year-old forward from Clemson becoming a key depth piece early on his career. At least heading into his first NBA training camp, Tyson is likely to find himself outside of head coach Michael Malone's rotation, though a strong showing in both the Summer League and the preseason could vault him ahead of Peyton Watson, Vlatko Cancar and fellow rookie Julian Strawther in the competition to replace some of the bench minutes that have opened up following the departures of Bruce Brown and Jeff Green.

  • Nuggets' Hunter Tyson: Drafted by Nuggets

    Tyson was selected by the Nuggets with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.

    A fifth-year player out of Clemson, Tyson was voted to the ACC All-First Team last year behind 15.3 points on 48/41/84 shooting, 9.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists. The forward has shown an ability to play well in a movement-based offense, which is what the Nuggets play surrounding Nikola Jokic. Tyson may not be in the rotation right away, but on the surface, he appears to be a good fit.
