The Denver Nuggets and forward Trey Lyles have until Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. EST to agree on a contract extension.

First round draft picks from 2015 who are set to play next season on the final year of their rookie contracts have until the last day before the start of the regular season to agree to a rookie extension. With the NBA announcing earlier this week that the regular season will tip off Oct. 16, the Oct. 15 deadline was set. If the Nuggets and Lyles don't agree to an extension before Oct. 16, the 22-year-old will enter restricted free agency next summer.
