Bobby Marks broke down two of the Nuggets’ contracts in a recent Instagram video, clarifying that Will Barton is on a descending two years deal, with $30MM fully guaranteed. He’ll receive $15.6MM in year one and $14.37MM in year two. Keith Smith of Spotrac adds that Barton’s deal includes $1MM in unlikely bonuses in each of the two years.
Marks also clarified Nuggets’ forward Jeff Green‘s new contract. It will be for two years, $9MM, with $1MM in bonuses. Green will have a player option in year two, as had been previously reported. Marks continues to say Green had been labeled as a minimum contract candidate coming into the off-season, so this contract represents a big win for him and his agent.
