Restricted free agent guard Will Barton is finalizing a deal to re-sign with the Denver Nuggets, league sources informed Northeast Ohio Media Group. The agreement with their athletic 24-year-old prospect is a three-year pact worth around $10 million, sources say. The deal could be signed as soon as today. Barton, a 2012 second round pick, spent his first two and half season with the Portland Trail Blazers and his role was extremely limited. The team consisted of a core group of veteran players that had the potential to make a deep postseason run.
