Mason Plumlee and the Denver Nuggets have agreed upon a three-year, $41 million contract.

Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season that would have allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

The Nuggets acquired Plumlee in February for Jusuf Nurkic and a first round pick.

Denver's frontcourt rotation consists of Nikola Jokic, Paul Millsap and Kenneth Faried along with Plumlee.
