    The Nuggets and head coach Michael Malone have agreed to a contract extension.

    The deal adds another two years onto this season. The Nuggets have improved every season under Malone going from 33-to-40-to-46 wins over his three-year tenure. The West is loaded, but the Nuggets are deep enough and strong enough to make the playoffs this season. The Kings are likely still shaking their heads over why they decided to fire the now coveted head coach during the 2014-2015 season.
