Aaron Gordon will be a member of the Denver Nuggets for the foreseeable future. Gordon has agreed to a four-year, $92 million contract extension with the Nuggets, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. The deal will keep Gordon in a Nuggets uniform through 2026, though it includes a player option for the 2025-26 season.
If no extension was reached, Gordon would have become an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming season.
Gordon, who played the first six full seasons of his career as a member of the Orlando Magic, was traded, along with Gary Clark, from Orlando to Denver in March in exchange for Gary Harris, R.J. Hampton and a future first-round pick. He appeared in 25 regular-season games for the Nuggets, averaging 10.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists.
He also played in 10 playoff games for Denver and averaged 11.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and two assists per performance.
Now that he is in Denver for the long haul, he and reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokic will continue to develop their chemistry together in the frontcourt, as they have the potential to be a dynamic duo on both ends of the floor
