Denver Nuggets, Kosta Koufos Agree To Three-Year Contract Extension

The Denver Nuggets have agreed to a three-year, $9 million contract extension with big man Kosta Koufos, according to Sam Amick of SI.com. The deal is guaranteed for the first two years while the Nuggets hold a team option on the final year of the contract.

Koufos, 22, has appeared in ten games with the Nuggets this season. He's averaged 3.5 points and 3.6 rebounds per game, although he only plays sparingly. Koufos was the Utah Jazz's first-round pick in 2008 before two trades have landed him in Denver. The Nuggets acquired him in the deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to New York.

The former Ohio State star doesn't play often due to the presence of other big men in Denver's rotation. The Nuggets already have Nene Hilario, Timofey Mozgov, Al Harrington and Chris Andersen in front of Koufos on the depth chart, and they drafted Kenneth Faried last year.
