Nuggets coach Michael Malone and the team have agreed to a multi-year contract extension. His current deal expired a year ago.

As part of the new agreement, Malone will remain with the franchise through the next few seasons when it hopes to challenge for a championship.

Despite missing two of their three best players, Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray, the Nuggets are still in the playoff hunt.

After a short stint with the Sacramento Kings from 2013 to 2015, Michael Malone joined the Denver Nuggets Basketball team.

Coach Malone has guided the Denver Nuggets to multiple playoff berths and one trip to the Western Conference Finals in 2020 since taking over as head coach in 2015.

Over the past three seasons, the Nuggets have won the most regular-season games in the Western Conference and won over 20 playoff games.

Basketball Coach Michael Malone ranks third all-time in team history with 309 wins behind Doug Moe and George Karl.

Malone transformed the Denver Nuggets from a promising young team into a title contender during his tenure.

This extension means the organization believes that he can bring the team a title in the coming years.
