Nuggets talk extension with Karl

DENVER (AP) - The Denver Nuggets and coach George Karl are discussing a contract extension through the 2011-12 season.

Karl, 59, who is closing in on 1,000 career wins, is in the final year of his contract. He missed the last couple of months last season while fighting throat and neck cancer. He recently received a clean bill of health but said his doctors will continue to monitor him.

General manager Masai Ujiri said on that while his policy isn't to discuss contract talks publicly, the team has said it wants Karl at the helm for a long time.

The team says both sides expect the deal to get done in the next few months.
