A couple weeks ago, reports came out that Jamal Murray and the Denver Nuggets had reached an agreement on an extension that would make Jamal Murray the highest-paid Canadian in the league.
Yesterday, that contract was officially signed, and Murray signed his name to a contract that will pay him $170 million.
Here’s how the contract breaks down year-to-year:
2020/21 - $29.25 million
2021/22 - $31.59 million
2022/23 - $33.93 million
2023/24 - $36.27 million
2024/25 - $36.61 million
Murray definitely came into his own last season, averaging a little more than 18 points per game and 4 assists while showing the lethal three-point shooting ability he displayed in Lexington.
Denver has a nice group of young players and it’s clear they believe Murray can be a leader on a team that has plans to contend in the Western Conference now and in the future.
Congrats to Jamal!
