  • Nuggets Sign Gary Harris To 4 Year $84 Million Extension

    Nuggets, Gary Harris agree on 4-year, $84M extension

    Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris has reached agreement on a four-year, $84 million contract extension, league sources told ESPN.

    The deal includes $74 million in guaranteed money, and team and individual bonus clauses worth the remaining $10 million, league sources said.

    Harris' agents with CAA Sports, Austin Brown and Aaron Mintz, completed the deal on Saturday night with Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly.

    Harris, 23, is eligible for his rookie extension as part of the NBA's 2014 draft class. There's an Oct. 16 deadline for players to agree to a deal, or proceed into restricted free agency in July.

    Harris and center Nikola Jokic have developed into the cornerstone talents of the Nuggets' talented young core.

    Harris' extension, which begins with the 2018-19 season, represents a dramatic rise for a 19th overall draft pick who overcame a poor rookie season in the NBA.

    Last season, Harris averaged 14.9 points on 50 percent field goal shooting and 42 percent on 3-pointers.

    Harris' progression this preseason, including a 25-point, 21-minute performance against the Los Angeles Lakers, has further solidified his standing as one of the NBA's elite young shooting guards.
