Will Barton back to Denver

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.

Atlanta Hawks coach and former Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer met with reporters before tonight’s game with his former team. Here’s the transcript from that session. Q: Even with Kawhi Leonard’s improvement and LaMarcus Aldridge’s arrival, how important does Parker remain for Spurs? Mike Budenholzer: “I think he’s very important. The way they play, they’re all very important. They work well together. But Tony has been the guy that kind of starts the engine when he’s aggressive and in attack mode. He can really set everybody up, including himself. He has been and always will be critical to them.”
Q: What has impressed you watching Leonard’s growth from afar? A: “Everything. Just the growth from his first two or three years to now. Defensively, he’s always been really special. To see how he has taken a lot of responsibility offensively, making tough shots and putting the ball in his hands and creating, he’s just a physical force at the small forward position. He’s really grown. It’s impressive.”
