Will Barton, Nuggets ‘Hopeful’ For New Deal After He Declined Option

Denver Nuggets wing Will Barton has been in the franchise since the 2014-15 season, and while he will hit free agency this summer, both he and the team are optimistic that he will stick. As reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Barton has turned down player selection on his contract for the 2021-22 season, and will pay him $14.7 million.

Even so, there seems to be optimism on both sides of the equation that Barton won’t be leaving town, as the team and players want to work on a deal to keep him in Denver.

While Barton has been a reliable source of attack for the Nuggets over the years, injuries have limited him this past season to 56 games, with his 13 absences at the end of the season. That entailed a post-season period, where he missed all of Denver’s first series against the Portland Trail Blazers before returning for a 2-4 against the Phoenix Suns, all of which was a loss to the Nuggets.

During the season, the 30-year-old Barton averaged 12.7 points, 4 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 31 minutes per game while connecting for 42.6% of shots from the field and 38.1 % of his throws.
