Nuggets Sign JaMychal Green To Two-Year Deal

NOVEMBER 30: The Nuggets have officially signed Green, the team announced in a press release.

NOVEMBER 21: The Nuggets have reached an agreement to sign free agent forward JaMychal Green to a two-year, $15MM contract, league sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link). The deal will include a second-year player option.

Denver’s depth chart took a hit earlier tonight when power forward Jerami Grant and center Mason Plumlee both agreed to sign with the Pistons. Signing Green will allow the team to replenish some of that lost frontcourt depth.

Green’s numbers don’t jump off the page, but he’s a reliable three-point shooter (39.4% over the last two seasons) and a versatile frontcourt defender who can play the five in smaller lineups. He averaged 6.8 PPG and 6.2 RPG in 63 games (20.7 MPG) for the Clippers last season and was an important role player for the team in the postseason.

Based on the reported figures for Green’s new deal, it appears the Nuggets will use a chunk of their mid-level exception to bring him aboard.

Meanwhile, the Clippers will now be looking to fill some holes in the frontcourt themselves. Although they agreed to re-sign Marcus Morris, they’ve now lost both Green and Montrezl Harrell since free agency opened.

    What happened to Clippers?

    Cheap owner? You’ve got to be kidding me.

    Clippers now have weak point guard, PF and C

    Most Vet Min guys on bench.

    no future picks,

    no blue chip young players

      They went all in last year to lose in western semis. This run needs to end with a w or clippers are done for next 5/6 years

    Really not impressed with the Clips or Nuggets offseason so far. Lakers have been solid. Blazers have made nice moves. Utah improved. Houston is hit or miss. Dallas is doing the right things. Golden State is doing what they can with no Klay.

    The West is crazy

      Can’t forget Phoenix turning themselves into a playoff squad either

    Not a bad price and player to get really. Green although he wasn’t great last season on a loaded clippers roster that underachieved is still decent.

    His career numbers are 8-6 in 22 minutes and shooting 37% from 3. He’s never been a major contributor but is a solid team first role player.
    He will be good either starting or off the bench.

    As for the Clippers they have gone backwards so quickly.

    From having Beverly Lou Will Jackson Kawhi PG13 Shamet Morris Harrell Petterson Green McGruder Zubac and Noah to what

    Kawhi unhappy, PG13 choke artist, Beverly, Lou Will at 34, Morris, Kennard on 1 leg, Zubac and a whole bunch of second round pick bums.
    No future picks, a whole of washed up vets and a whole new coaching staff.

    Things have got so bad so quickly

    The best they can do now is try trade Beverly Lou Will and Morris for Russ and House creating a big 3. Then get really lucky in FA and possibly trades.

    Maybe Serge Ibaka at like 8mil 1 year deal, Kris Dunn on about 5 mil, Hassan Whiteside for the minimum and Rondo on the minimum but that all seems really unlikely

    1. Russ. Rondo
    2. PG13. Kennard
    3. Kawhi. Dunn
    4. Ibaka. Petterson
    5. Whiteside. Zubac
