Nuggets' Mason Plumlee: Re-ups with Denver on three-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plumlee re-signed with the Nuggets on Monday on a three-year, $41 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Since Plumlee was a restricted free agent, the Nuggets had the ability to match any offer sheet the big man would have received from another team, but with few teams having the existing cap space to submit a competitive contract to Plumlee, he was content to stick around in Denver. Though he saw his numbers drop across the board while playing second fiddle to Nikola Jokic after coming over via trade from the Trail Blazers last February, Plumlee's combination of size (6-foot-11, 255 pounds), athleticism and passing skills make him a viable rotational big man for just about any team. Plumlee isn't likely to see his role grow much in his first full season in Denver with Paul Millsap and Jokic entrenched as the clear frontcourt starters, but Plumlee and Kenneth Faried should form a high-energy tandem on the second unit. Look for Plumlee to receive around 15-to-25 minutes per game while coming off the bench, which will likely relegate his utility to deeper fantasy formats.

Nuggets' Josh Childress: Agrees to deal with Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Childress and the Nuggets agreed to a contract Tuesday, Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders reports.

The details of Childress' contract aren't known, but considering the 2004 sixth overall pick is now 34 years old and hasn't appeared in the NBA since 2013-14, it's not expected that his deal is fully guaranteed. The swingman has bounced around the globe the last few seasons, spending time with teams in Australia, the G League, Japan and most recently, as a member of the "Ball Hogs" three-on-three squad in the BIG3 league. While the Nuggets apparently came away impressed by Childress' showing in the BIG3, he'll still face an uphill battle to see minutes at the NBA level this season, as he'll likely be a deep reserve for the Nuggets if he's able to secure a roster spot out of training camp.
