After a first round exit out of a 57-win Denver Nuggets team, George Karl's future has been discussed, but the organization fully supports the head coach.
"George is under contract for next year. At this point in time, we haven't really given any thought to making any change whatsoever," Nuggets president Josh Kroenke said. "As we do at the end of every season, we'll have internal meetings and George will obviously be a major part of them. We won 57 games and in my mind, he should hands down be the NBA coach of the year.
"We'll all put our heads together and try to figure out what happened (in the playoffs) and why it happened. We were without our second-leading scorer, and some benefit of the doubt should be given to a coach with well over 1,000 wins without one of his leading scorers (Danilo Gallinari) in the playoffs."
Karl's Nuggets set a franchise record in wins this season, but they weren't themselves against the No. 6-seeded Golden State Warriors and lost the series in six games.
"I think there's a heavy burden on me, and of course my record speaks for myself," Karl said after the loss. "And even though I put an armor on to defend my record, I'm disappointed in my record, as well."
