The Denver Nuggets arrived at the same conclusion regarding Johan Petro’s contract situation as I did. They did not extend him a qualifying offer, a one year contract for just under $2.85 million, making him an unrestricted free agent as of July 1.
I do not know if the Nuggets are interested in bringing Petro back at a cheaper price, the only news regarding the status of his qualifying offer was a sentence long blip at the end of an article that I missed the fist time I read it, but I would think he would have to be a cheap option if Denver is looking for a cheap big man to fill the role of emergency big man that Petro did so well last season.
Hat tip to Nate at Pickaxe and Roll for actually reading the last sentence of the aforementioned article.
