  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Agrees to multi-year extension

    Gordon agreed to a four-year, $92 million contract extension with the Nuggets on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    After being acquired from the Magic in March, Gordon went on to average 10.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 27.1 minutes in 35 games for Denver. Though his numbers predictably took a hit with the move to a more talented Nuggets squad, Gordon made enough of an impression for Denver to keep in the fold on a long-term deal that includes a player option for the 2025-26 season. While retaining Gordon was clearly important to Denver, it raises questions about whether or not the Nuggets will be able to afford an extension of that size -- or bigger -- for Michael Porter next offseason.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Struggles on offense in Game 3

    Gordon finished Friday's Game 3 loss to Phoenix with just four points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and four rebounds in 36 minutes.

    To be fair to Gordon, a lot of his defensive contributions don't show up in the box score, but the forward has been a disappointment on the offensive end since coming over from Orlando. In the postseason (10 games), Gordon is averaging just 10.5 points on 43.2 percent shooting while struggling to find his role in the Nikola Jokic-led offense. In Games 2 and 3 against Phoenix, Gordon has totaled only 10 points and five rebounds to go with five turnovers in 56 minutes.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Drops 18 points Tuesday

    Gordon finished with 18 points (8-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals and two assists in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 122-105 loss to Phoenix.

    Gordon stepped up for the Nuggets on both ends of the floor but unfortunately saw his efforts go to waste in what was a game they certainly could have won. Since arriving in Denver, Gordon has struggled to have a consistent impact, highlighted by his declining fantasy numbers. That said, he can be an influential player thanks to his athleticism and speed, something the Nuggets are going to need more of if they are to topple the surging Suns.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Emerges as solution for Lillard

    Gordon provided 13 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes in Monday's 128-109 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Damian Lillard started Game 2 where he left off and scored 32 of his 42 points in the first half. Coach Michael Malone then made the shrewd move of assigning the 6-foot-8 Gordon to defend him. Gordon was in Lillard's face the rest of the evening and slashed his production in the second half. Although it's impossible to shut down a player like Lillard consistently, we will probably see Gordon defending Lillard moving forward.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Flirts with double-double in loss

    Gordon amassed 16 points (7-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 28 minutes during Saturday's 123-109 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Gordon, playing in his first playoff game for the Nuggets, came away with a serviceable, yet unspectacular, line. The flaws in his overall game were once again on display, as he failed to make either of his free throws while adding very little in terms of peripheral production. If the Nuggets are to turn things around against an experienced Trail Blazers outfit, they are going to need Gordon to step things up on both ends of the floor.

  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Scores two points in 12 minutes

    Gordon managed two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and two rebounds in 12 minutes during Sunday's 132-116 loss to the Blazers.

    The 25-year-old returned to the court Sunday after missing Friday's game due to rest purposes to score just two points on four attempts. None of the Nuggets' starters played above 20 minutes, so the low-production game from Gordon isn't a surprise. Before Sunday's game, he was averaging 14.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 57.6 percent from the field over his last three games. The seven-year forward has been decent since being traded to Denver back on March 25, averaging 10.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 0.7 steals over his last 25 games. The Nuggets will need his versatility heading into their playoff series matchup against the Blazers.
