Former Penn State Hoops Guard Andrew Funk Signs Exhibit 10 Contract With Denver Nuggets

Former Penn State men’s basketball guard Andrew Funk signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Denver Nuggets, the team announced Tuesday. Denver previously signed Funk to a Summer League contract after he went undrafted in the 2023 NBA Draft.

Throughout four appearances in the Summer League, Funk averaged 5.25 points, 1.25 assists, and one rebound in 11.1 minutes per game.

With an Exhibit 10 contract, Funk will remain in Denver on a one-year, minimum-salary deal. He’ll continue playing alongside fellow Nittany Lion Jalen Pickett, who was selected by the Nuggets with the No. 32 overall pick in the second round of the 2023 NBA Draft.

Funk averaged 12.5 points and three rebounds per game, alongside a 44.4% field goal percentage in the 2022-23 campaign, his only season in a Penn State uniform. The 6’5″, 188-pound Warrington, Pennsylvania, native spent his first four collegiate seasons at Bucknell.

Funk started all 37 games in Happy Valley and led both the team and Big Ten in three-pointers with 112 conversions from beyond the arc. Additionally, his 8-of-10 three-point performance was crucial in Penn State’s first-round matchup with Texas A&M in the NCAA Tournament, as the Nittany Lions cruised to a 76-59 win.
