Nuggets All-in: $ 207 million for Michael Porter Jr.

Michal Porter Jr. enters the 200 million club. And the Nuggets go for everything with their project. To the maximum of Nikola Jokic (31.5 million next year and about 34 the next) and Jamal Murray (170 million in five seasons) is joined by Porter, who secures 207 in five years, a spectacular figure to the that only seven other players have arrived in history: in order of winnings, Stephen Curry, Joel Embiid, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jimmy Butler, Luka Doncic and Rudy Gobert, which between contracts and extensions have gone to spectacular numbers, coming from the last television contract (24,000 million in nine years signed in 2014) and the 2013 collective agreement.

The Nuggets tie a project with certain risks, but with a very clear idea: to build a team around Nikola Jokic, with Jamal Murray as the prop and Porter as the anchor. Besides them, Aaron Gordon has 16.5 million pending next year, last of a contract of 80 million in four years. In other words, another decision that the Colorado entity will have to make in the future and with a player who will not be cheap at all in free agency. And that’s not counting the almost 16 million that the next JaMychal Green course will charge. In other words, many debts to pay, little salary margin and a clear idea: to bet on what there is right now. And with that, to be eligible for the ring.

It does not seem, except for surprise, that this will happen next year. Jamal Murray tore the ACL in his left knee and was left without the remainder of the season. And not only that, but it will not return until the end of the next … and we’ll see excuse me. The unsuccessful event left a team without options that in 2020, in the Orlando bubble, reached the Western Conference finals for the first time since 2009. The loss against the Lakers was clear (4-1), but the sporting development of the squad certified that Mike Malone was the right fit for the position and he definitely opted for a project that, at the expense of the level Murray returns to, is one of the most promising in the NBA.
