The Nuggets now have 14 players on guaranteed contracts and are now $8.7M below the luxury tax. Denver this offseason has saved a projected $90M in salary and tax by trading Faried, Arthur and recently Wilson Chandler in a previous trade to Philadelphia.

The Isaiah Thomas contract in Denver now brings the roster to 16 guaranteed contracts. The Nuggets with the $1.5M Thomas cap hit (total $2M salary based on 7 years of service) now have a team payroll of $136.3M and a current tax bill of $22.5M. Denver does have flexibility with the expiring contracts of Kenneth Faried ($13.7M) and Darrell Arthur ($7.5M). The Nuggets still have $3.3M remaining of the tax midlevel exception.
Isaiah Thomas agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Nuggets, sources said, as he joins his fourth team in a year. It's high-reward, low-risk for Denver and a chance for Thomas to re-establish himself.
