We told you it was close last week, and apparently now close is a reality.

George Karl has agreed to a three-year extension with the Denver Nuggets, according to a tweet from Chris Broussard of ESPN. The team has an option for a fourth year, Ken Berger of CBSSports adds.

To get an idea just how much Karl means to this team, remember how steep the drop off was when he was out — due to cancer from which he thankfully has recovered — and Adrian Dantley had to guide them into the post-season. The Nuggets were not the same.

Karl is a good fit in Denver, a player that really likes to push the pace but whose teams like to play defense. That seems a good fit with the rebuilding process we are about to see in Denver in the wake of the Carmelo Anthony trade.

    Karl is going to make this current team and any other additions we get a contendor as soon as the lockout gets out of the way.
