An information leak from the Nuggets' side of things? Interesting ...

The Denver Nuggets rarely have information leaked under the Masai Ujiri reign. Sort of funny that information about the Nuggets initial offer to Ujiri would be leaked, but Chris Tomasson, of Fox Sports Florida, just Tweeted this out:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>Nuggets initial offer to Masai Ujiri was believed to start at $1.2 mil per year, less than half of Toronto’s offer Will Nuggets raise it?</p>&mdash; Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) <a href="https://twitter.com/christomasson/statuses/339504287686205440">May 28, 2013</a></blockquote>

The $1.2 million per year offer is a nice raise from the $500,000 that Ujiri was believed to be making on his original contract, but will it be enough? The Raptors are rumored to be offering something in the $1.5M, $2.25M, or $3 million per season range - depending on which reporter you want to believe. No matter who you choose to believe, the Nuggets are coming in below all three rumored offers from Toronto.

Perhaps we'll find out soon which way Masai will go ... expect some news on Ujiri's decision tomorrow.
