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.”
