Quincy Miller, Uncut: Former No. 1 Prospect Taking Next Step in Detroit

By Brian Kotloff | March 25, 2015

Quincy Miller‘s third year as a pro has been an unexpected roller coaster, beginning with his release from the Nuggets just two days before their season opener.

Six weeks later, the 22-year-old joined a Reno Bighorns team that allowed his versatile skill set to flourish to the tune of 23.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals, 3.3 blocks, 2.1 three-pointers and 6.1 free throws per game over 17 NBA Development League games.

He’s since found a home in Detroit, where the Pistons have signed him for the remainder of the season. See what makes the up-and-coming team a good fit for Miller, from head coach Stan Van Gundy to veteran mentors Caron Butler and Tayshaun Prince, via Pistons.com.
