DENVER (AP) -- The Denver Nuggets have agreed to a multiyear deal with Axel Toupane after seeing enough of the forward through a pair of 10-day contracts.

Toupane (pronounced tu-PON) is averaging 3.0 points and 1.3 rebounds in 11 appearances for the Nuggets this season. Before joining Denver, the 23-year-old native of France suited up in 32 games for the Toronto 905 of the NBA D-League, where he averaged 14.6 point and 5.6 rebounds.

The 6-foot-7, 210-pound Toupane played in the French Pro National Basketball League A from 2011 to 2015.
