Nuggets Sign Guard To 2-Year Extension

The Denver Nuggets have signed newly-acquired guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a 2-year, $30 million extension, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Nuggets acquired Caldwell-Pope along with guard Ish Smith this offseason from the Washington Wizards in exchange for Will Barton and Monte Morris.

Caldwell-Pope brings championship experience to a Nuggets team that is looking to contend with back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokic leading the way. 

KCP has established himself as a solid 3-and-D role player. He would be a terrific fit playing next to The Joker.

Denver will get their two stars Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. after both missed most of the 2021-22 season. 

Murray sat out the entire campaign as he continued to recover from a torn ACL. Meanwhile, Porter only got to play nine games before shutting the season down due to a nagging back injury.
