Nuggets Forward Kenneth Faried Critical of His Play This Season

Nuggets Forward Kenneth Faried Critical of His Play This Season

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Even though the Denver Nuggets are rebounding from a tough start to the season, forward Kenneth Faried has been disappointed by his own play so far.

During the offseason, Faried signed a four-year extension with the team worth $50 million. So far, according to himself, he hasn't lived up to his new deal.

“Awful…I just haven’t been playing my game,” Faried told the Denver Post. “I know it. My teammates know it. My coaches know it. Hopefully, this month of December, I turn everything around. But for me, it’s awful."

"You’ve got to be able to look at yourself, look at the man in the mirror and say that to yourself. And be able to correct yourself,” he continued.

Through 17 games, the 25-year-old Faried is averaging 11.4 rebounds and 7.0 rebounds per game. Last season, he averaged 13.7 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

At 9-8, the Nuggets are fifth in the NBA in scoring at 105.4 points per game but are 26th in points allowed at 105.2 per game.

LeBron Powers Cleveland to Win Over Nuggets

LeBron Powers Cleveland to Win Over Nuggets

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(DENVER) -- Behind a near triple-double from LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped a brief two-game skid with a 110-101 win over the Denver Nuggets on Friday. James scored a team-high 22 points while also dishing out 11 assists and pulling in seven rebounds.

Cleveland (2-3) led by 18 after the first quarter, which included nine total assists. The Cavs had just six assists in the their last game, a 100-102 loss to Utah. Despite only scoring two points in the period, James did have six assists by himself. As a team, the Cavaliers dished out 25 assists in the win.

"We were in tune defensively from the beginning and ... sharing the ball," James said. "We were locked in. I was very pleased with that."

Cleveland led by as many as 21 points in the second half, but the Nuggets (1-4) were able to claw their way back into the game. Randy Foye, who led Denver with 28 points, hit a layup with six minutes left in regulation to cut the deficit to 96-88. Less than 90 seconds later, it was a six point game.

Dion Waiters then stole a pass from Wilson Chandler and dunked it home at the other end, stopping the Denver momentum and giving the Cavaliers a 100-92 lead. Despite being outshot from the floor, Cleveland was 24-of-33 at the foul line while the Nuggets went just 10-of-15.

ESPN: Nuggets Agree on Five-Year Extension with Kenneth Faried

ESPN: Nuggets Agree on Five-Year Extension with Kenneth Faried

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Fresh off his dominating performance for the United States in the FIBA World Cup, Yahoo! Sports and ESPN reports that the Denver Nuggets and forward Kenneth Faried have agreed on a five-year extension.

The deal is reportedly worth $60 million, and Faried will make no less than $52 million over the duration of the contract.

Entering his fourth season with the Nuggets, Faried has steadily improved since the Nuggets drafted him 22nd overall back in 2011. While he is not the team's star player, Faried is seen a relentless rebounder who plays with high energy and is a true "glue" guy who plays solid defense and is a key part of the Nuggets starting rotation.

In 80 games last season, the 24-year-old Faried averaged 13.7 points and 8.6 rebounds in 27.2 minutes per game.

ESPN: Bulls to Sign G Aaron Brooks

ESPN: Bulls to Sign G Aaron Brooks

Sacramento Kings/NBA(NEW YORK) --  The Chicago Bulls are finalizing a contract with free agent guard Aaron Brooks, according to ESPN.

The addition of Brooks gives the Bulls another scoring option off the bench.  Chicago has retooled its roster during the offseason with the additions of former All-Star Pau Gasol, European forward Nikola Mirotic, and rookie guard Doug McDermott in hopes of competing for the Eastern Conference crown.

The 29-year-old Brooks was selected by the Houston Rockets with the 26th overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft out of the University of Oregon.

Brooks averaged 9.0 points and 3.2 assists per game last season while playing for the Rockets and Denver Nuggets.
