Aaron Gordon agrees to four-year, $92M extension with Nuggets

Forward Aaron Gordon joined the Denver Nuggets via an anticipated trade from the Orlando Magic in March and has now committed his immediate future to his current employer. 

Per an ESPN story, Calvin Andrews of Klutch Sports, Gordon's agent, told the Undefeated's Marc J. Spears that his client, who turns 26 years old on Thursday, has agreed to a four-year, $92 million contract extension with the Nuggets. The deal includes a player option for 2025-26, $88 million in base salary and $4 million in incentives. 

Gordon entered the NBA when the Magic drafted him fourth overall in 2014, and he's built a reputation for being one of the league's top dunkers: 

Critics would say Gordon never took the next figurative step toward superstardom during his tenure with Orlando, and he admitted this past March he felt "frustration" over the Magic's inability to routinely win anything of note: 

In 50 regular-season games in 2020-21, Gordon averaged 12.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists.
