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.

The veteran opted out of the final year of his contract to test the market, and, like last season, there is interest in him around the league. Arthur has always been a solid defender and locker room leader. Last season he added a more potent offensive attack to his game as well. There is desire on both sides to get a deal done, and according to league sources the two are set to meet on Friday, but Arthur’s price may skyrocket in the wake of the new, ultra-high salary cap. Arthur made $2.8 million last season. He could get into double-digit millions this time around.
