Former Morehead State star Kenneth Faried has signed a five-year contract extension with the Denver Nuggets. The deal is worth $60 million, according to Yahoo! Sports, ESPN and several other national media outlets.

Faried, a 6-foot-8 forward, most recently helped the United States capture a gold medal in the FIBA World Cup. The U.S.A., which won all nine of its contests, has now secured an automatic bid to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Faried has tallied 2,490 points and 1,770 rebounds in 206 NBA games over the past three seasons. He averaged 13.7 points and 8.6 boards while shooting 55 percent from the field in 2013-14.

Faried was taken 22nd overall in the 2011 NBA Draft. He earned a spot on the NBA’s All-Rookie First Team in 2012. The Newark, N.J., native was tabbed to the NBA’s Rising Stars Challenge in 2013 when he also picked up the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award.
