Nuggets Re-Sign Will Barton

AUGUST 7TH, 3:26pm: The signing is official, the team announced.

JULY 25TH, 4:50pm: Denver still has yet to make an official announcement, but the signing took place Thursday, according to the RealGM transactions log.

JULY 11TH, 10:59am: The Nuggets are finalizing a deal to re-sign Will Barton, Chris Haynes of The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports. The agreement will be for three years and worth approximately $10MM, Haynes notes.

After being selected in the second round of the 2012 draft, Barton saw limited playing time in two and a half seasons with the Blazers. He flourished after being traded to Denver at the deadline, averaging 11.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 28 games after the deal.

Denver and the Brian Elfus client had reportedly shared interest in a new deal, so today’s news is no surprise. Last month, the Nuggets tendered a qualifying offer to Barton worth more than $1.18MM to make him a restricted free agent.
