The Nuggets and Jamal Murray have officially signed an extension of 5 years and $170 million.
Murray has played three seasons for the Nuggets already and is only 22 years old. He has become one of the best young point guards in the NBA and will attempt to lead the Nuggets alongside Nikola Jokić. Teams facing the Nuggets will almost certainly focus on the chemistry that exists between Murray and Jokić. The Nuggets already have one of the best pick-and-roll combinations in the league. If Murray can improve as this contract ages him into his prime, the Nuggets will continue to compete deep into the postseason for years to come.
