According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, forward Mason Plumlee agreed to a $41 million over three years contract with the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets acquired Plumlee last season from a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for Jusuf Nurkic and a 2017 first round draft pick that was used to select Harry Giles.

Plumlee's production in Denver slightly went down due to limited playing time, but he still managed to produce great numbers for the Nuggets.

Denver Nuggets' 2016-2017 NBA season

Denver Nuggets ended the 2016-2017 regular season with a record of 40-42 wherein they finished ninth in the Western Conference Finals and barely missed the NBA playoffs. The Nuggets were led by 28-year old forward Danilo "Galo" Gallinari and young 6-10 center Nikola "the Joker" Jokic.

Gallinari led the team in scoring in the past NBA season and averaged 18.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game while shooting a solid 44.7 percent from the field, 38.9 percent from three, and 90.2 percent from the free-throw line.

While the Joker led the team in rebounds and averaged 16.7 points, 9.8 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.8 blocks per game.

Nikola Jokic also shot 57.8 percent from the field, 32.4 percent from three, and 82.5 percent from the free-throw line.

The emergence and the continuous development of Denver's young studs in the likes of Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, Emmanuel Mudiay, and Garry Harris caused the city of Denver to be optimistic for the future.

Mason Plumlee joins a crowded front-court in Denver, with players like Nikola Jokic, Darrell Arthur, Juan Hernangomez, Kenneth Faried, and the newly acquired free-agent forward Paul Millsap.
