Like Porter, Gordon is set to enter the last season of his contract and could leave as a free agent next summer, a risk the Nuggets knew when they acquired him for Gary Harris, RJ Hampton and a future first-round pick. When the Magic structured the four-year, $76 million contract that Gordon signed in 2018, they did so with the salary declining in each year. As a result, the maximum extension that Gordon can sign for is four years, $88 million. The $19.7 million cap hit in year one is a 120% raise off his $16.4 million salary in 2021-22.

On the flipside, Crowder is paying a price for his behavior, literally. “I’ve got to be smart,” he said. “I can’t always bite the bait. I keep giving money back to the league. I’ve given a lot of money back this whole playoffs.” According to the 2020-21 NBA rule book, a player is fined $2,000 for each of his first two technical fouls, $3,000 each for his third and fourth technical foul in the playoffs. Crowder picked up his fourth technical of the playoffs Wednesday after he and Aaron Gordon got into it in the third quarter.

And with just one year left on Gordon’s contract, it’s unclear when or even if the Nuggets will ever get to see what that collection of players could become. “No excuses — that’s what we believe,” Malone says. “And that’s why I’m so proud of this team.”
