The Denver Nuggets remain incredibly bullish on the future of Michael Porter Jr., who is in his rookie season after missing all of 18-19.

"Michael Porter Jr. is not going anywhere," said Sam Amick on the Tampering podcast. "I was even told that this is a rare thing in those parts, but from somebody just a few days ago is a Stan Kroenke edict that coming on high from ownership that he's so in love with Michael that he doesn't want him going anywhere. That doesn't sound like a card that Stan plays all that often. I found that interesting."

Porter is averaging 8.0 points and 4.4 rebounds in 14.2 minutes per game this season with the Nuggets. Porter has had a 21.5 PER in December and 22.5 in January.
