The Denver Nuggets have picked up their team option on power forward Paul Millsap, ensuring that the veteran big will remain in Denver for at least one more season. With free agency on the horizon, this move seems to suggest that the Nuggets aren't going to be making any major moves to change the makeup of their team, meaning Millsap should enter the 2019-2020 season without much of a change in his outlook from last season, when he played in 70 games for the Nuggets and averaged 12.6 points and 7.2 rebounds. Millsap averaged under 10 shots per game for the first time since the 2009-2010 season, and he'll likely remain an efficient but lower volume scorer moving forward for this team.
Denver Nuggets power forward/center Nikola Jokic continued his strong play on Sunday in the decisive Game 7, but his efforts were not enough in the 100-96 season-ending loss for his club. Jokic scored 29 points and grabbed 13 rebounds but managed just two assists. The big man did record four blocks and added just two turnovers in 42 minutes of court time. Jokic made a name for himself in this postseason where he averaged an incredible 25.1 points, 13.0 rebounds, 8.4 assists, 1.1 blocks and 0.8 steals on 50.6% shooting and is on the books for three more years in Denver. Jokic is once again a lock for the first round in all drafts next season and will be an elite fantasy asset for years to come.
Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray struggled to find his rhythm from the floor on Sunday in the four-point Game 7 loss to the Trail Blazers. Murray connected on 4-for-18 shooting from the floor but did make all of his nine shots at the line en route to 17 points and added six boards with five dimes and just one turnover across 38 minutes. Murray showed some great promise in this series scoring 34 points on two occasions, but consistency and experience looked to be his downfall. Murray will definitely build from this and he is a lock for mid-round or even better value next season in all formats.
Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris posted an efficient 15 points on Sunday, but it was not enough in the 100-96 Game 7 loss to the Trail Blazers. The guard connected on 7-for-11 shooting and added six rebounds with three assists in 39 minutes of action. Harris stepped things up this postseason after a rocky, injury-plagued season and we saw him average 14.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 triples on 46.2% shooting from the floor in playoffs. Harris can hopefully build on this for next season as the Nuggets do covet their starting shooting guard.
Denver Nuggets power forward Paul Millsap struggled offensively in the decisive Game 7 on Sunday when the veteran managed to make just three of his 13 shot attempts in the loss to the Trail Blazers. Millsap finished the night with just 10 points but managed to add seven rebounds with three blocks in 32 minutes of action. Millsap had dominated the Blazers' frontcourt for most of this series, but coach Stotts went with more length in this one to slow him down and it proved successful. The Nuggets have a $30 million team option for Millsap next season, so it will be interesting to see the direction they go with the 34-year-old veteran.
