Will Barton ranked among the Denver Nuggets' top five in minutes (fourth), points (fifth) and assists (fifth). That his rich but not ridiculous contract ($26.5 million over the next two seasons, $14.7 million player option for 2021-22) would grade as the worst shows there's a bunch of good money on the books. But given how stocked the Nuggets are with young, improving perimeter players and the fact most will need new deals before Barton's is up, it's possible they'd gauge the 28-year-old's trade market. This wasn't his best year by durability or production, and he picked the worst time for a frigid stretch, shooting just 34.8 percent overall and 27.3 percent outside over Denver's 14 playoff games.
