Shams Charania of the Athletic is reporting that even though both sides showed effort in talks and Nuggets were aggressive in making offers to find deals, there was no agreement for a contract extension with Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez and both players are headed for restricted free agency next summer.
It appears that both players are betting on themselves to go out and earn more than whatever those “aggressive” offers were but the current situation makes them trade candidates. There’s not a ton of wings on the market this upcoming summer like last offseason so both players could get some heavy interest. The Nuggets appear to have kicked the can down the road to the trade deadline. At that point they’ll once again be forced to face the question of whether or not Beasley and Hernangomez are in their long term plans.
