The Denver Nuggets will meet with the representatives of Kenneth Faried next week and hope to sign the forward to an extension.

“We’re gonna try and get something done,” Tim Connelly said. “Kenneth’s toughness and passion are at the heart and soul of our team. No one in the NBA plays harder.”

Only Ty Lawson and the Nuggets' two draft picks are on the team's salary books beyond the 2015-16 season.
