To decline $9.3M player option
This should come as no surprise, as Grant will look to capitalize on a strong finish to the postseason -- he posted 26, 17 and 20 points, respectively, in the final three games of the conference finals against the Lakers. Grant should command a fairly significant raise, but it remains to be seen whether the Nuggets -- who have interest in bringing him back -- will be willing to match his price. Per Charania, Phoenix, Detroit and Dallas are among the teams expected to show interest.

Scores team-high 20 points

Goes for 19 points in Game 5 loss
Murray was dealing with a bruised knee prior to Game 5 and that might have been the reason why he looked limited at times -- his 19-point output was his lowest mark of the postseason since Sep. 9, when he scored 18 against the Clippers. Murray was Denver's best player during the postseason by a wide margin and averaged 26.5 points per game while hitting the 30-point plateau six different times.
