Monday’s 4 p.m. deadline for rookie scale extensions came and went, and neither fourth-year Nuggets Malik Beasley or Juancho Hernangomez had a new deal. That means both will enter next summer as restricted free agents, where the Nuggets still have the chance to match any offer sheets that either player receives from an opposing team.
Storyline: Juan Hernangomez Extension?

No extension for Beasley, Hernangomez

Shams Charania: Sources: Denver’s Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez are not expected to reach agreements by 6 p.m. ET deadline. All sides showed effort in talks, and Nuggets were aggressive in making offers to find deals. Both talented young players are headed for RFA.

Paul Millsap, Mason Plumlee and Torrey Craig are all on expiring deals. Jerami Grant has a $9.3 million player option awaiting him at the end of the season. And Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez are a few weeks away from entering the season without contract extensions, which would trigger restricted free agency for both next summer. That’s a whole lot of core contributors with murky futures past 2019-20 — with Hernangomez’s among the fuzziest. Asked at Monday’s media day what outcome he would prefer, the 24-year-old Spaniard said he hopes to stay in Denver. “This is my home,” Hernangomez said. “We are in a good way to do something great. I want to be a big part of it.”
