Nuggets Sign Kosta Koufos To Three-Year Extension

After agreeing to terms earlier today with Danilo Gallinari on a contract extension, the Denver Nuggets later locked down another piece of their young nucleus: Kosta Koufos is sticking around for three years and $9 million, according to the Denver Post.

Koufos, who was dealt from Utah to Denver last February as part of the three-way Carmelo Anthony blockbuster, has grown into a bigger role with the Nuggets this season, even starting five games at center. He's averaged 3.5 points and 3.6 rebounds per contest.

"He's so doggone aggressive," assistant coach Melvin Hunt told the Post. "If he gets a foul or two, so be it. We'd rather say 'whoa' than 'giddy-up.' He's a giddy-up dude. We like that ... And for a big guy, he can really, really shoot the ball."

Koufos and the Nuggets are 12-5 this season, second-best in the Western Conference and fourth-best in the NBA. They take on the Kings on the road tonight.
