The Nuggets have extended a qualifying offer to Mason Plumlee, making him a restricted free agent.
After trading enigmatic center Jusuf Nurkic to acquire him, this was a foregone conclusion. The interesting part here is whether or not the Nuggets like what they have in Plumlee after seeing him in action next to Nikola Jokic, who is the future of the franchise. Could a team that overvalues Plumlee swoop in and take him? Probably not but it’s an interesting exercise in gauging how much buyer’s remorse the Nuggets possibly have.
