Michael Porter Jr. is eligible for a contract extension this offseason and has been encouraged by the discussions with the Denver Nuggets.

Porter said he talks to his agent Mark Bartelstein daily about updates.

“Everything is sounding great, in the direction that I’d like to be headed,” Porter said. “Nothing is set in stone, but everything is going smooth as far as that goes.

“One thing about Mark – something probably could’ve been done already but Mark is the best in the business,” Porter added. “I told him, ‘Take your time, do your thing. I’m in no rush, I’m in grindmode. I’m not stressed about it. I’m just in the gym, and whenever you’ve got some news for me, hit me up.’”

Porter averaged 19.1 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 31.3 minutes over 61 games last season for the Nuggets.
