The Denver Nuggets got into the NBA spending spree early Monday morning.
Mere hours after free agency opened up, the up-and-coming team signed star young point guard Jamal Murray to a five-year, $170 million max extension.
The No. 7 overall pick of Denver back in 2016, Murray has morphed into one of the best young guards in the game.
Last season saw him average 18.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists while shooting 44 percent from the field.
The new extension will come into play following the 2019-20 season, locking Murray up for a total of six more seasons.
