On the other hand, forward Darrell Arthur is an unrestricted free agent. He played out the last year of his contract last season. The Nuggets would like to retain Arthur, one of the team’s best defensive players, but expected competition from a host of teams, including the Detroit Pistons, to sign Arthur.
Topping the Nuggets’ to-do list is re-signing guards Jameer Nelson and Will Barton. Both played a huge role in stabilizing things on and off the court for a Nuggets team going through a turbulent season until early March, when coach Brian Shaw was fired.

NBA free agency opens up next week, and the player arguably at the top of the Nuggets’ wish list is one of their own — point guard Jameer Nelson. Nelson’s representation has informed the Nuggets he will opt out of the remaining year of his contract, but Denver remains a strong contender to re-sign him.: 2 more rumors
Nelson has had a chance to speak with new Nuggets coach Mike Malone and, according to a source, is on board with the hire. Nelson is hoping to secure steady, significant playing time, which right now appears to be a stretch with three point guards on the roster — Ty Lawson, Mudiay and Erick Green. With Lawson’s future up in the air because of the possibility of a trade, playing time could open up quickly.
The Denver Nuggets were rumored to have put Ty Lawson on the trading block and after they selected Emmanuel Mudiay with the No. 7 pick, it looked his time in Denver was coming to an end. Apparently even Lawson believes this, as he was caught on camera saying, “‘I’m going to Sacramento.” Either Lawson knows something that we don’t or he is under the influence of whatever he is smoking. However, if he reunites with Kings coach George Karl in Sacramento then Lawson may be able to see into the future.: 3 more rumors
