The Denver Nuggets officially agreed to a multi-year contract extension with general manager Calvin Booth.

According to Mike Singer, Booth's deal runs through the 2024-25 season.

Booth, 46, is in his sixth season with the franchise. He started in 2017 as an assistant general manager before being promoted to GM in 2020.

The Nuggets are coming off a 48-34 season in which they finished sixth in the West. They were eliminated in the first round by the NBA champion Golden State Warriors.

Among Booth's offseason moves were adding veterans Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Ish Smith in a trade with Washington. He also brought in center DeAndre Jordan and versatile wing Bruce Brown.

Before moving into the front office, Booth suited up for seven different NBA teams: Washington Wizards, Dallas Mavericks, Seattle SuperSonics, Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Sacramento Kings.

He played in 366 career games, averaging 3.3 points and 2.8 rebounds.
