Danilo Gallinari Contract: Nuggets Agree To Extension With Young Forward

More: Do you like the Gallinari contract?

With the in-season deadline for contract extensions between players still on their rookie contracts and their current teams rapidly approaching, it appears as if the Denver Nuggets and small forward Danilo Gallinari are close to an extension that would keep the Italian star in Denver for the next four seasons.

According to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post, the Nuggets and Gallinari are close to agreeing on a four-year contract extension that would be worth $42 million. Gallinari was acquired by the Nuggets as the centerpiece of the Carmelo Anthony trade, and Gallinari would join Nene and Arron Afflalo, who both recently inked long term deals with the team, as the core of the Nuggets franchise.

Gallinari, who has thrived in George Karl's open offense, is averaging a career high 17.4 points per game this season, to go along with 5.2 rebounds.
