The 6-foot-11 big man, who spent the offseason as a restricted free agent, agreed Monday morning to a multi-year contract, a move Plumlee confirmed in a letter to fans on his website.
This is an exciting, talented young team with a bunch of high character guys and I’ve always admired the loyalty and dedication of Nuggets fans.
By signing Plumlee, the Nuggets have secured their backup center behind 6-10 Nikola Jokic , who last season finished second in the voting for most improved player and was recently ranked the No.
The Nuggets value Plumlee’s ability to be a facilitator from the center position, creating what they believe will be a seamless transition as it relates to playing style when he replaces Jokic in games.
Plumlee was a restricted free agent this summer, meaning another team could sign him to an offer sheet and the Nuggets would have the opportunity to match.
