Arthur made the decision to stay in each of the past two summers. This summer, he signed a three-year, $23 million contract with the Nuggets. He could have gotten more money elsewhere. The Spurs, Clippers and Wizards all were interested in him. “I felt comfortable here,” he said, explaining his decision. “I felt comfortable with what we’ve got going. They asked me if I wanted to get traded last year at the trade deadline and I said ‘No, I like what we have going on.’ I could have gotten more money if I would have went somewhere else, but me and my wife we love it here, I love what’s going on and I love what we’re building with. So it was an easy decision.”
Michael Malone: “We were a young team last year and we got a little bit younger through the draft which we’re excited about. It’s tough to win big in the NBA when you’re this young, but we feel we have a lot of good young players and assets. And you balance that with guys like (Danilo Gallinari) and (Kenneth) Faried, Darrell Arthur. People forget but we consider Wilson Chandler a free agent signing (since he missed all of last season). This is a long-term play. This is an opportunity to show improvement, for our players to get better and we have a chance to be here for a while.”
The Denver Nuggets have re-signed free agent forward Darrell Arthur to a multi-year contract, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly announced today. Arthur, 6-9, 225, appeared in 70 games (16 starts) for Denver in 2015-16, averaging 7.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists in a career-high 21.7 minutes per game. He made a career-high 45 three-pointers while shooting a career-best 38.5% from beyond the arc as well.
