Nuggets Re-Sign Darrell Arthur

JULY 9th, 3:52pm: The signing is official, the team announced via press release.

5:40pm: Arthur’s three-year deal will pay him $23MM, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. Dempsey suggests (via Twitter) that Arthur accepted a bit less money to stay in Denver, suggesting the power forward had a bigger offer on the table from another team.

JULY 1st, 5:32pm: The Nuggets have agreed to terms on a new contract for Darrell Arthur, reports Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post (Twitter link). According to Dempsey, the two sides are in agreement on a three-year deal.

Arthur, 28, appeared in 70 games for Denver during the 2015/16 campaign, recording 7.5 points and 4.2 rebounds per game while shooting 45.2% from the field. He declined his player option for 2016/17, which was worth a little less than $3MM, but had previously indicated that he wanted to remain with the Nuggets even if he decided to opt out of his contract.

It’s been a quiet free agent period so far from the Nuggets, who haven’t been linked to any notable free agents since the new league year begins. Their agreement with Arthur doesn’t represent a huge splash, but it allows the team to retain a veteran who was a key part of the rotation last season.

The Wizards were among the other clubs expected to have interest in Arthur.
