(Colo.)- Denver Nuggets GM Has Busy Offseason Ahead
DENVER (AP) - Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly says contract extensions for center Nikola Jokic and guard Will Barton are among his offseason priorities and he hinted coach Michael Malone might be in line for one, too.
The Nuggets have increased their win totals from 30 to 40 to 46 under Malone but they extended their playoff drought to five years when they lost in overtime at Minnesota in the season finale this week.
Jokic was drafted in the second round in 2014 and signed a three-year deal a year later. The Nuggets have a $1.6 million fourth-year option, which they can decline this summer and instead give Jokic a max contract.
Malone has a year left on his original four-year deal he signed in 2015.
