After an incredible performance in this year’s qualifiers, Jeremy Grant will not make his player’s choice and will withdraw from his $ 9 million contract.
Grant was a big part of Nuggets’ success in postseason last year. His defense of Kawhi Leonard, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis along with his attack, particularly on the Lakers series, earned him plaudits from all sides.
There is an expectation that he will return to the Denver Nuggets on a higher-paying contract.

According to Mike Singer of the Denver Post, a combo striker who can also play as a mini ball center would make between $ 14 to $ 16 million.

Grant, Paul Millsap, and Mason Blumley are the three members of Nuggets who will be free customers for this season. Millsap is expected to sign a friendly deal with Denver after the bank struck during its previous contract with the concession.
Plumlee would also be a low-maintenance signature. This will allow Nuggets to sign a grant on a deal in line with their market value.
Grant has significantly improved his three-point shot this season. While having Blumley ensured that he didn’t have to play the center role much this season, he has shown during his time with Thunder that he is also ready for this challenge.
Grant’s signing of a new contract will be the highlight of the Offseason Nuggets front desk agenda.
