    Default Birdman returns to Nuggets (reported 5yr / $26mil)

    Seems a bit long for a 31yo

    DENVER (AP)—Chris “Birdman” Andersen has reached a five-year deal to keep his high-flying, shot-blocking act with the Denver Nuggets, the team he revived his career with last season.

    Andersen’s attorney, Mark Bryant, confirmed the agreement on Wednesday, saying it could be signed later in the day. The deal was first reported by the Denver Post.

    Andersen, who turned 31 on Tuesday, could make up to $26 million over the lifetime of a back-loaded contract that gives the Nuggets financial flexibility.

    The Nuggets didn’t return phone calls.

    Andersen will make close to $3.65 million in 2009-10, up from the $998,398 he made last season, when he averaged 6.4 points and 2.5 blocks in 20.6 minutes.

    If he is kept to playing the 20 mpg for the majority of his contract....I can see him living up to most of his contract.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Cripes, I didn't realise he was 31 already, nice contract bar the length, 3 years would have been enough for my liking..
