Terms of the extension announced Wednesday were not released by the team. Malone was under contract through the 2022-23 season.

Over seven years in Denver, Malone has won 309 regular season games, a total that ranks third in franchise history behind only Doug Moe and George Karl.

His 20 postseason victories are fourth all-time in team history, and just four away from matching Moe.

Malone guided the Nuggets to the Western Conference final in 2020 before losing to the Los Angeles Lakers

 In that playoff run, the team rallied back from being down 3-1 in two different series.

This season, Denver is closing in on its fourth straight postseason appearance despite the absence of point guard Jamal Murray (knee) and sharpshooter Michael Porter Jr. (back).

The Nuggets have relied heavily on reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokic along with a strong supporting cast that includes Aaron Gordon, Will Barton, Monte Morris and Jeff Green.
