The Nuggets entered the offseason with decisions to make on five team options for the 2018/19 season, and the team has elected to pick up all five of those options, according to RealGM’s log of official NBA transactions. Here are the details on the rookie-scale team options exercised this week by Denver: Emmanuel Mudiay (fourth year, $4,294,480) Jamal Murray (third year, $3,499,800) Trey Lyles (fourth year, $3,364,249) Juan Hernangomez (third year, $2,166,360) Malik Beasley (third year, $1,773,840) The moves ensure that Mudiay, Murray, Lyles, Hernangomez, and Beasley are now locked up to guaranteed contracts through at least 2019. The numbers listed above reflect the cap hits on Denver’s books, and not necessarily the players’ exact salaries, since players on rookie contracts received pay bumps as a result of the new CBA.
