The Denver Nuggets were busy spending plenty of dough yesterday, as they re-upped with Danilo Gallinari and Kosta Koufos. From the Denver Post: “Kosta Koufos, a backup 7-footer, also accepted a contract extension — three years, $9 million, with the third year a team option. Koufos, 22, is now averaging only 11.3 minutes after Wednesdaynight’s 122-93 win at Sacramento. But he has played a big role in some games, including a victory at New Orleans in which his energy and blocked shots led to a fourth-quarter surge. Gallinari’s and Koufos’ contract extensions signify Denver’s desire to build around a young nucleus. Last month, the Nuggets locked up starters Nene (five years, up to $67 million) and Arron Afflalo (five years, up to $43 million).”
