Report: Danilo Gallinari has accepted a two-year contract extension with the Nuggets

Danilo-Gallinari--Denver-Nuggets-2015-jpgThe Denver Nuggets have been very active lately in regards to their roster. After point guard Ty Lawson got arrested, the Nuggets traded him to the Houston Rockets. Many thought that forward Danilo Gallinari was going to be the next player on the move. It was reported that the Nuggets were in trade talks with the Boston Celtics for Gallinari, but now things have changed. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Gallinari has accepted a two-year contract extension with the Nuggets.


Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari is finalizing an agreement on a two-year extension worth an additional $34 million on his contract, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The deal is a restructuring that includes a $2.5 million increase on the $11.5 million owed to Gallinari as he enters the final year of his contract in 2015-16, sources said.

Under the newly negotiated terms, Gallinari will make $14 million this season, the first of a deal that runs through the 2017-18 season, sources said. He will make $15.5 million in 2016-17 and has a player option worth $16.1 million for the third year of the deal and a full trade kicker, sources said.


Keeping Gallinari and Wilson Chandler are good building blocks for a team that is in rebuilding mode. The question now is whether or not the team will keep Kenneth Faried.
