Andre Iguodala Tells Denver Nuggets He Wants Contract Extension

Andre Iguodala was introduced for the first time Thursday as a Denver Nugget, and admitted to the Denver media he'd like to stay in the Mile High City for the long-term.

"We weren't coming into this thinking this will be a one-year deal," Iguodala said.

Iguodala, who was traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to Denver while playing for Team USA in the Olympics, is currently under contract for the 2012-13 season, but has a player option for '13-14. Nugget executives Josh Kroenke and Masai Ujiri each admitted at the presser Iguodala was in their plans for the team's future, and both parties will look into a long-term deal during the season.

"He brings a veteran presence, a winning presence," Kroenke said. "He wants to win. He's going to bring that mentality to our team and instill it in a lot of our younger guys."
