Michael Malone signs contract extension with Nuggets
Michael Malone has earned a well-deserved contract extension with the Denver Nuggets.
For the second time in just over a year, Malone has signed a new deal with Denver, the team announced Tuesday.
Terms were not disclosed, but according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the deal runs through the 2022-23 season.
Malone certainly deserves the plaudits. The team has increased its win percentage in every season under him, and he’s off to a 21-8 start in 2019-20 after winning 54 games last season. The next step is likely further advancement in the playoffs. Last year was the firs ttime Denver made the playoffs under Malone, and they fell in seven games in the Western Conference Semifinals.
Malone looks well-positioned to keep the momentum going in Denver. He’s confident and a great quote, too, suggesting the future is bright for the Nuggets.
