The longest-serving nugget has played 56 games in the Nuggets this past season (2020-21), starting all but four. He averaged 12.7 points, 4 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. Burton missed for about six weeks at the end of the regular season and faced Sands in the second leg of the Western Conference semifinals.

According to athletic Shams Charania, Green also signed a two-year deal worth $ 17 million with player options in the second year. In his first season at the Nuggets last year, Green averaged 8.1 points and 4.8 rebounds, giving him a lot of depth from the Denver bench.
