Nuggets make changes in front office

Posted Aug 3 2010 5:02PM

DENVER (AP) -- The Denver Nuggets are shaking up their front office.

The team declined Tuesday to extend the contracts of executives Mark Warkentien and Rex Chapman. Warkentien was the league's executive of the year two seasons ago when the Nuggets reached the Western Conference finals.

The Nuggets were 42-21 last season when they lost coach George Karl to cancer treatment and Kenyon Martin to another knee injury in March. They faded down the stretch under acting coach Adrian Dantley and fell to Utah in the first round of the playoffs.

The Nuggets said they would restructure the front office, which could mean a bigger role for Josh Kroenke, the son of owner Stan Kroenke.
