The Denver Nuggets have re-signed center Mason Plumlee to a multi-year contract, President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly announced today. Acquired in a trade with Portland on February 13th, Plumlee, 6-11, 245, appeared in 27 games for Denver in 206-17, averaging 9.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.10 blocks in 23.4 minutes per game.
His final professional season was the 2011-12 season, directly after his involvement in the labor talks. When asked by our Alex Kennedy if his role in the negotiations limited his career, here is what Evans told HoopsHype: “It definitely impacted my ability to earn and [continue to] play in the NBA. But to be honest, I knew the writing was on the wall from how active of a role I played. Being an entrepreneur and businessman myself, I know certain things like that have repercussions. I don’t have any regrets. I did exactly what was right and true for the situation, which was to represent the best interest of the guys in this league moving forward.”
