Will Barton    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

The Nuggets are in talks with Will Barton about a contract extension. Barton would likely make a lot more money if he opts for free agency in 2018 instead, so this is a bit of a surprise. Gary Harris and Wilson Chandler will start on the wings for Denver this season, but Barton should see plenty of minutes as the sixth man and is on the radar as a late-round flier after posting 13.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.5 triples on 44.3 percent shooting last season.

The Nuggets are in talks with Will Barton about a contract extension. Barton would likely make a lot more money if he opts for free agency in 2018 instead, so this is a bit of a surprise. The deadline to reach a deal is Oct. 16, but expect the trade rumors to heat up if an extension isn't agreed upon. Gary Harris and Wilson Chandler will start on the wings for Denver this season, but Barton should see plenty of minutes as the sixth man and is on the radar as a late-round flier after posting 13.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.5 triples on 44.3 percent shooting last season.

Kenneth Faried    F/C  Nuggets

 

 

Kenneth Faried implied he will not be happy coming off the bench in Denver this season. "I’m not a bench player. I’ve been saying that for the longest. I’m a starter," Faried said. "If this team doesn’t want or respect me enough to play me the minutes or whatever that I’m going to play or that I deserve to play, then I understand that. There are 29 other [teams]. Maybe I go somewhere else and do what I need to do there." The Nuggets acquired Paul Millsap this summer, so there's no way that Faried will start, and he's essentially publicly demanding a trade with these comments. As long as he's in Denver, Faried will have zero fantasy value.

Jamal Murray    G  Nuggets

 

 

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said the point guard position is the only one up for grabs entering training camp. "We're gonna let our point guards earn that job," Malone said. The coach also added that he's planning to use a nine-man rotation, so that likely means only two PGs will be in the rotation. Jamal Murray should be the favorite to start after his strong finish to the 2016-17 season and Jameer Nelson likely has the edge over Emmanuel Mudiay for the backup role for now. We'll be watching this position battle closely in camp this week.

Gary Harris    G  Nuggets

 

 

After re-signing Mason Plumlee, the Nuggets are turning their attention towards a contract extension for Gary Harris. The Nuggets have until opening night to negotiate an extension, but based on GM Tim Connelly's comments back in April, Harris should have no trouble landing a lucrative deal. The 23-year-old SG averaged career highs in points (14.9), rebounds (3.1), assists (2.9) and 3-pointers (1.9) last season, shooting 50.2 percent from the field and posting top-60 value in standard leagues on a per-game basis. He's one of our favorite mid-round targets this season.

Mason Plumlee    C  Nuggets

 

 

Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to Denver. General manager Tim Connelly said back in April that the restricted free agent was going to be a "huge piece" of their core, so he was never expected to leave Denver. Plumlee will be Nikola Jokic's backup this season and will compete for minutes with Kenneth Faried, so his outlook is far from ideal. The arrival of Paul Millsap doesn't help either. Plumlee averaged 9.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 blocks with the Nuggets last season in 23.4 minutes per game, but he will have a tough time matching those numbers this time around.

Josh Childress    G/F  Nuggets

 

 

Josh Childress had reportedly agreed to a deal with the Denver Nuggets. Childress has not played in the NBA since December of 2013, when he suited up for the New Orleans Pelicans. He spent last season in Japan and played in the Big 3 League over the summer. We don't yet have details, but the contract is very likely non-guaranteed, as Childress is a longshot to make the Nuggets final 15-man roster.
