Arthur described his injury as being similar to what Los Angeles Clippers standout Jamal Crawford has been dealing with. Crawford has missed 15 consecutive games and is not expected back until next week. Should Arthur be forced to miss that kind of time, it would end his season. Hunt remained optimistic. “If we were in a different situation, he would fight me and make me let him play,” Hunt said. “But given the situation that we’re in right now, it just doesn’t make sense to force it, to push it. Because one of the big things for him is I definitely want to make sure he is able to finish the year active and playing.”
The following players, per league sources, are also considered likely buyout candidates if they are not traded by the deadline: Andrea Bargnani (New York); Brandon Bass, Tayshaun Prince and Marcus Thornton (Boston); Andrei Kirilenko (Philadelphia); Willie Green (Orlando); Randy Foye and Darrell Arthur (Denver).
Player contracts due to expire at the end of this season belong to guard Nate Robinson and forward Darrell Arthur. Both have expressed a desire to return to the team, but both will be unrestricted free agents next summer, free to sign with any team in the league. Meanwhile, Arron Afflalo has a player option for his final season. It will pay him $7.5 million for his last season, and he would be an unrestricted free agent at its end, in 2016. Or he could opt out of the final year and become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

All things considered, Darrell Arthur would like to stay. The Nuggets forward is entering the final season of a contract he signed when he played for the Memphis Grizzlies. Traded to the Nuggets last summer, Arthur will be a unrestricted free agent at the end of this season. He’ll be paid $3.4 million this season. Asked if he wanted to in Denver he said, “Oh yeah, for sure. My family loves it here. My mom was just up here for a couple of weeks and she just loves it – loves the atmosphere, loves the people here. I love the organization, everything. It’s a family organization, they welcome you with open arms. I definitely would like this to be home.”

Darrell Arthur insists the decision isn’t final, but ask him about next season and he’ll tell you he’s looking forward to it being in a Nuggets uniform. Arthur must make a decision about a player option for next season, the second and final year of his contract, which is due to pay him $3.45 million. “I’m just going to wait until the season is over with and talk to (Nuggets general manager) Tim (Connelly) and see what’s up and go from there,” Arthur said. “But I’m looking forward to coming back here. I like it here. I feel like when we’re healthy, we have a great team to build with, and I want to be a part of it.”
If talks with the Raptors do progress, according to sources, it’s possible that a trade with Memphis could expand to include other teams and players. NBA front-office sources have maintained for weeks that Calderon (who has an expiring contract), fellow Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry (only $1 million in guaranteed salary next season) and former No. 1 overall pick Andrea Bargnani all are available.
Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur is on this road trip with the team, and one would think he’s playing given his appearance before tipoffs. A sweat-drenched Arthur walked off the court Friday night about an hour before the Griz faced the Golden State Warriors. The 6-9 reserve isn’t cleared to play or participate in contact practices. But Arthur works relentlessly on his conditioning and has targeted Dec. 1 for his return to action from the leg fracture he suffered in September.
