However, a new coach offers a new slate. (Stan) Van Gundy said he traveled to Atlanta last week to have lunch with (Josh) Smith.

“I thought it was a great conversation. Josh is a smart guy. He knows what it takes to win in this league,” Van Gundy said. “He’s capable of doing all those things. We talked about a lot of things in terms of his game, what he thinks his strengths are, where I see it going and the whole thing, and I came away very encouraged that Josh is enthusiastic about the year and excited to get going.”

Van Gundy realizes Smith is potentially the best two-way player on the roster. And if he isn’t moved in the off-season, he will seek to use those talents.

Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.

Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.

With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
