Paul Millsap is the team's only free agent who stayed in the rotation throughout the season.

NBA

After winning a Game 7 against the San Antonio Spurs in the opening round of the playoffs, the Denver Nuggets failed to do likewise in their Western Conference Semifinals matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers. On Sunday, they fell in the do-or-die matchup by the score of 100-96.

It still was an excellent season for Denver as they finished with the second-best record in the Western Conference. The team will likely be able to jell more next season as most of their rotation pieces are under contract for next season. The Nuggets could hope another year together helps propel them further into the playoffs or they can look to sign pieces to add to their depth/make a trade. HoopsHype takes a more in-depth look at what awaits them in the offseason.

Here are the five players (four are free agents, one has a team option) that the Nuggets will need to decide whether they want to keep on the roster (listed in alphabetical order by last name). The team's free agent list was taken from Spotrac. Ages listed are how old they will be when next season begins.
