Power forward JJ Hickson and the Denver Nuggets have reached an agreement on a three-year, $15 million deal, reports Yahoo! Sports.

Andy Miller, Hickson's agent, confirmed the deal telling CSNNW.com, “He is going to Denver and we're happy with the situation.”

During the 2012-13 season as a member of the Portland Trail Blazers, Hickson, 24, put together his most productive year to date averaging 12.7 points and 10.4 rebounds while playing out of position at center. He was also seventh in the league with 40 double-doubles.

The 6-9 forward wasn't shy about letting you know he preferred to play his natural position.

It's hard to envision Hickson getting his wish in Denver being that Kenneth Faried has established himself as the future at the spot.

However, the addition of the fifth-year veteran does bolster Denver's frontcourt depth.
