Report: Denver contract extension talks with Lawson slow

Ty Lawson was one member of the draft class of 2009 contract where a contract extension was thought to be a lock. The two sides were talking and the assumption around the league has been that the Nuggets would not let the speedy young point guard that seems born to run George Karl’s offense go.

Or… maybe not. Interesting tweet from Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld.

 

Previous reports were that the Nuggets had offered four years, $44 million as an extension. Which seems a fair price and I can’t imagine the two sides are all that far off. So most likely this is one side (player or team) trying to put pressure on the debate by leaking that things have slowed.

The Nuggets are a team willing to pay JaVale McGee $10 million this season, you have to think they will pony up for Lawson. So long as Lawson isn’t being unreasonable.

If no deal is reached by the Halloween deadline, Lawson becomes a restricted free agent next summer. Then we’ll see what the real market for him is.

    If George Karl wants him, the front office should sign him. The Nugs are going to be good and Lawson is the key. He should stay for the new uniforms, they are dope.
