Nuggets, Karl Talking Contract Extension

Early word from the Hall of Fame coach is that the deal could be for three years. From The Denver Post: “The team announced contract extension negotiations with coach George Karl today, but the question remains: How much longer does he want to coach? Asked that question Karl said he’s a ‘a three-year guy.’ ‘I’d be 63 then,’ Karl said. ‘If I want to do it after that, then we talk again maybe. I think I have the passion and the bottle of energy to try to keep this Broadway show going.’ As for the organization’s strong willingness to re-sign him for the near future, preferably three years by Karl’s timetable, the coach said ‘I think we’re all excited. We’ve had a good run here. We’d like another shot at trying to get to the top of the mountain. (Executive vice president of basketball operations) Masai (Ujiri) and (team president) Josh (Kroenke) have done a great job. I’ve always enjoyed my time with Stan (Kroenke). I think the team is in a good place.’”

    yeuh lets get coach on this and then melo !


    Good for George Karl, but I doubt this has any impact on Carmelo Anthony and his contract situation. At the end of the day, Carmelo will likely continue to keep his options open, as well as keep his leverage by not signing the extension. Simply put, George Karl’s future and Carmelo Anthony’s future are not tied to each other – they’ll both do what’s best for themselves and their families.
