Former Portland Trail Blazers center and restricted free agent Mason Plumlee has agreed to remain with the Denver Nuggets on a three-year, $41-million contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The Trail Blazers traded Plumlee, cash considerations, and a second-round draft pick to the Nuggets on February 13, 2017, in exchange for Jusuf Nurkic and a first-round draft pick that was later parlayed in another trade that yielded rookie center Zach Collins.

Questions about Plumlee’s next contract dogged him through the summer, as centers were in high supply and short demand. He will play in a somewhat crowded frontcourt that currently includes Paul Millsap, Nikola Jokic, Trey Lyles, and Kenneth Faried.
