The Denver Nuggets had an extremely disappointing postseason run this year, losing in five games in their first-round matchup against the Golden State Warriors and looking severely outmatched in the majority of the games.

That was not for a lack of effort from Nuggets star center Nikola Jokić, who was excellent this season.

His impressive play was enough to get another MVP award, just narrowly beating out Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid.

This was his second consecutive MVP award, and it’s now clear that Jokić is an irreplaceable player for the Nuggets and should continue to be great for them for years to come.

It seems like they realize this too. There have already been discussions on a long-term contract extension, and it appears that both Jokić and the Nuggets are on the same page.

Reports have emerged on Friday that Jokić is expected to re-sign with the Nuggets when the organization offers him a five-year $260 million supermax deal sometime next month.

According to The Athletic, Jokić’s brothers met with Nuggets general manager Calvin Booth and assistant general manager Tommy Balcetis in recent days to discuss the direction of the team moving forward.

Things reportedly went extremely well, and it appears that they all have the same vision for the future.

This report has many Nuggets fans excited for the future now knowing that they will likely have Jokić for the foreseeable future.

It’s certainly deserved for the two-time MVP winner. Jokić is the type of player that you leave the contract blank for.

You pay him as much as he wants for as long as he wants because he’s truly a generational talent.

One area of concern for the Nuggets will be how they surround him. They haven’t had much postseason success to this point with Jokić as their star.

The team was short-handed this season with Jamal Murray missing the entire season as well as Michael Porter Jr. missing a huge portion of it.

If the Nuggets are healthy and good to go for next year, they’ll be a very dangerous team in the Western Conference.
