The Denver Nuggets and Aaron Gordon share optimism about a potential contract extension with a deal possibly being reaching within the next few days.

Gordon is eligible for a four-year, $88 million extension. One source projected a deal could be for two or three years at an average annual salary of $20 million to $21 million per year.

Gordon is entering the final season of a four-year, $80 million deal, which has declined to $16.4 million this season. 

The Nuggets acquired Gordon at the deadline from the Orlando Magic. Gordon has been spending hte majority of his summer in Los Angeles working with Chris Johnson with an emphasis on his mid-post game.  

At around $20 million per season for Gordon, the Nuggets could have more than $110 million committed to Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, Michael Porter and Aaron Gordon for the 22-23 season.
