DENVER — The Denver Nuggets reached deals with first-round picks Jusuf Nurkic and Gary Harris on Thursday.

The team picked up the rights to both players in a draft-night trade with Chicago that sent high-scoring Creighton forward Doug McDermott to the Bulls along with forward Anthony Randolph, who was later dealt to Orlando.

The 7-foot Nurkic was the 16th overall pick in the draft. He averaged nearly 12 points and six rebounds for Cedevita Zagreb last season in the Adriatic League.

Harris was taken at No. 19. He averaged 16.7 points and 2.7 assists last season for Michigan State.

The 19-year-old shooting guard had a solid summer league for the Nuggets, leading the team with an 18.6 scoring average.
