Broncos’ Marshall receives honorary Nuggets jersey for making his pitch to Millsap
Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall has another No. 54 jersey to add to his collection.
After helping the Nuggets recruit free-agent forward Paul Millsap last week, Marshall received an honorary jersey, complete with his number and name on the back.
Marshall joined Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly and guard Gary Harris in an hours-long pitch to Millsap in Atlanta last week. A day later, Millsap agreed to a threeyear, $90 million contract, giving the Nuggets a fourtime all-star to pair with young center Nikola Jokic.
“I can sell water to a well,” Marshall jokingly tweeted Sunday night. “Congrats big homie! Paul Millsap let’s do it big for the city one time.”
Marshall told Denver7 that he was eager to help another local sports franchise and bring back a player coveted in the NBA’s frenzied free agency.
Millsap spent more than a decade in Denver as a youth, and played quarterback in middle school here, before his mother and his siblings moved to Louisiana.
