Lawson Tweets: "It Looks like im going to be a nugget for another 4 yrs"

Troy Babbitt-US PRESSWIRE

Lawson's new deal with the Denver Nuggets is being reported as 4-years and $48 million.

On the eve of the 2009 rookie extension deadline, Ty Lawson Tweets that a deal with the Nuggets is done.

Marc J. Spears, of Yahoo! Sports, has the details on Lawson's new deal:

It looks like we can start calling Jeff Morton, Nuggstradamous as he's been talking about $48 million over four-years for a couple days now.

This is great news for the Nuggets and Lawson as the contract extension could have hung an ugly cloud over the Nuggets all season. Lawson will make on average, $12 million per season on his new deal starting in the 2013-14 season and will be locked up with Denver through the 2016-17 season, when he'll be 29 years old.

Masai Ujiri's track record of locking up key players remains intact.
