  • Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Resting for preseason finale

    Gordon will sit out Thursday's preseason finale against the Thunder, Katy Winge of Altitude Sports reports.

    Gordon wraps up the preseason averaging 9.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 23.8 minutes. He's fully expected to be available for Wednesday's opener against the Suns.

  • 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.
