Nuggets’ Malone Inks Contract Extension
The Denver Nuggets know what their future holds.
NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed that the Nuggets agreed to extend Michael Malone’s contract. Specifics of the contract have not yet been released.
The head coach for the Nuggets last year went 54-28 as a No. 2 seed and advanced to the Western Conference Semifinals for the first time since the 2008-2009 season.
His leadership for the team has also meant the Nuggets are the only team in the NBA to increase their win total in each of the last four seasons.
In his entire coaching tenure (five seasons) with the Nuggets, Denver has gone 194-163 through 357 games.
“I would like to thank Josh, Stan and the entire Kroenke family, along with Tim Connelly and the front office, for continuing to believe and trust in me as their head coach,” Malone said. “None of this would be possible without the hard work, dedication and trust from our players as well as the entire coaching staff. I’d also like to thank the amazing fans in Denver who have helped make Pepsi Center one of the toughest places to play in the NBA once again. I look forward to continuing our ultimate goal of winning NBA Championships.”
