As many people call them, the Denver Nuggets are the team of the future, and in order to maintain that label they have to keep their pieces.
That's what they've started doing, as ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Monte Morris has agreed to a three-year contract extension with the organization, worth $27 million.

Morris, who was the 51 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, has come a long way in his career, establishing as a solid role player for Michael Malone's team.
The 25 year-old had solid performances with the Nuggets during their Western Conference finals run last season. This is a significant development in his game, considering Morris spent most of his first season in the G-League.
Throughout the 155 games he's played at the 'Mile High City' the past two years, the Iowa State product has averaged 9.6 points and 3.5 assists per contest.
