Kenneth Faried's next contract

Kenneth Faried was outstanding to close out the regular season as he averaged 18.8 points and 10.1 rebounds after the All-Star break in February. He is eligible to sign an extension from the beginning of July until the end of October and he deserves to get a new deal during that time, instead of waiting until 2015 as a restricted free agent. With that in mind, the Denver Nuggets plan to speak with him and his agent, Thad Foucher, in hopes of getting something finalized before training camp begins in the fall.
