Oct. 16 — the day before the start of the regular season — is the last day that eligible players can sign rookie extensions. If Harris’ camp and the Nuggets don’t come to an agreement by then, the 23-year-old will hit restricted free agency next summer. If Harris signs an offer sheet with another team in restricted free agency next year, Denver would have 72 hours to match and retain his services. “No, (it’s not on my mind),” Harris said of the extension. “I’m just ready to get ready for camp, ready to get rolling, especially with the squad we have it’s going to be a fun year.”

Harris is in the third year of his rookie scale contract, which, according to the collective bargaining agreement, is paying him $3,968,800 for the first three years and is scheduled to be $2,125,046 for the fourth year, which is a team option year. The two sides have until Oct. 31 to agree to an extension. “He’s a guy that kind of embodies everything that we’re trying to be, both as a player and as a person,” Connelly said. “Whether it’s this summer or whether it’s the following summer, he’s going to be here for a very long time.”

Ian Begley: Jeff Hornacek says one of the Knicks’ goals this season is to see steady improvement over 82 games: “What we stressed to these guys is that we’re going to continue to work every day no matter what happens. We’re going to try to improve. We’re going to have ups and downs but in the long run if we stay together, continue to work and we try to fix those things — they may not be incremental jumps but if you have little jumps throughout all 82 games you’re going to be a much better team at the end of the year than you are now. So that’s really the goal.”
