George Karl Wants Contract Extension With Denver Nuggets

George Karl's future with the Denver Nuggets after this season has yet to be decided. He did sign a one-year extension to take him through the upcoming season, but the Nuggets have yet to discuss a long-term extension with Karl. According to Chris Tomasson of AOL Fanhouse, Karl would like to sign a multi-year deal with the Nuggets:

"I'm going to live in Denver probably the rest of my life,'' said Karl, 59. "So I think that answer (about wanting to re-sign) is yes. But it's got to be a respectful offer.''

Karl, who is recovering from a fight with cancer earlier in the year, is 986-671 as a head coach, putting him only 14 games away from 1,000 career wins. In his six seasons with the Denver Nuggets, Karl has led the team to winning seasons every year and three straight 50-win season.

Karl and the Nuggets will take the court Wednesday night in the Pepsi Center against the Utah Jazz.
