Monte Morris is interested in signing a contract extension with the Denver Nuggets.

“I don’t think it’s a secret to anyone,” Morris told The Denver Post. “I would love to get an extension here. I love Denver. I love everything from the organization to the coaches all the way down to equipment, to everyone. Me, personally, hopefully, if it goes that way. I would love to be in Denver for however long.”

Morris is on a $1.7 million expiring contract with the Nuggets that is non-guaranteed until the start of free agency.

There is believed to be mutual interest in a deal.

Morris is not interested in a deal unless it is well above the $6 million per year range.
