Nuggets And Danilo Gallinari Agree On Four-Year, $42 Million Extension

The Denver Nuggets and forward Danilo Gallinari have agreed to a four-year, $42 million contract extension according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard’s official twitter account.

In his fourth year in the league, Gallinari is averaging 17.4 points and 5.2 rebounds per game for the Nuggets.

Gallinari was traded last season to the Nuggets in a three-way blockbuster deal that brought Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups to the New York Knicks.  Currently, the Nuggets’ record stands at 12-5, which is second in the Western Conference behind the Oklahoma City Thunder.
