Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports that Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. is hopeful for a contract extension as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. Both parties are trying to get a deal done before the start of the season, but Porter has told his agent, Mark Bartelstein, that he’s not in any particular rush.
“I told him, ‘Take your time, do your thing. I’m in no rush, I’m in grind mode. I’m not stressed about it. I’m just in the gym, and whenever you’ve got some news for me, hit me up.
