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.

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.
