‘Birdman’ re-signing with Denver Nuggets
The Denver Post
DENVER, Colorado – Get ready to flap your wings again. “The Birdman” is back.
Chris Andersen and the Nuggets have agreed on a five-year contract that could earn Andersen up to $26 million, the player’s manager, Mark Bryant, said Tuesday night. This locks in one of Denver’s most popular athletes for the next half-decade.
“We’re ecstatic to stay in the community,” Bryant said.
Andersen will make $3.7 million next season in his backloaded and incentive-based contract, which will help the Nuggets financially. They entered this free-agency period over the NBA luxury tax line of $69.92 million, which was announced Tuesday.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
