George Karl Wants to Be Paid Like a Top-tier Coach

Karl repeatedly has said he wants to stay in Denver. Karl is under contract for the rest of this season, and he’s seeking a potential three-year extension.

With 958 career wins and annual win-total improvement with Denver, Karl feels he should be paid as one of the top coaches in the NBA. His current $3 million salary does not put him in that group.

"We really want to try to move towards a resolution," Adams said, "because we don’t these contract discussions to be a distraction."
