Nuggets make Plumlee signing official

The Denver Nuggets have officially re-signed free agent center Mason Plumlee, the team announced in a press release.

According to ESPN, Plumlee’s contract is for three years and $41 million.

Per the release:

Acquired in a trade with Portland on Feb. 13, Plumlee, 6-11, 245, appeared in 27 games for Denver in 2016-17, averaging 9.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.10 blocks in 23.4 minutes per game.

Over four seasons, Plumlee has appeared in 315 career games (213 starts) for Brooklyn, Portland and Denver, averaging 9.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 23.0 minutes per game.

“With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer,” ESPN wrote.
