Luc Richard Mbah A Moute Receives Offer From Denver Nuggets

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is a restricted free agent, allowing the Milwaukee Bucks to match any offers other NBA teams send the defensive specialist during the lockout-shortened free agency period. Mbah a Moute's first offer, submitted on Saturday, has apparently been sent from the Denver Nuggets.

The Nuggets sent an offer sheet that would pay Mbah a Moute a bit more than $19 million over the course of the next four seasons, according to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post. The Bucks would have a chance to match the offer, but Hochman's source said that might not happen.

The Nuggets opened training camp on Friday with just 11 players, including two rookies considered long shots to make an NBA opening-day roster, after losing the majority of their roster in the offseason. Wilson Chandler and J.R. Smith are playing in China this season while Nene, perhaps the team's best player last season, is exploring his free agency options along with Nuggets restricted free agent Arron Afflalo.

The Bucks will have three days to match the Nuggets offer if they're so inclined. As pointed out in our free agency preview, they're likely to be inclined -- but Denver's offer might be a bit more than they're willing to pay.
