The Pelicans did not immediately comment on the report.
The reported extension would bind Nance to the team for three years -- through the 2024-25 season -- at a total contract value of $31.3 million.
Nance, 29, joins Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and C.J. McCollum on long-term deals, forming a solid core of players for the Pelicans moving forward.
Nance last season averaged 7 points and 5.4 rebounds in 46 games with Portland and New Orleans. During the Pelicans’ six-game playoff run, Nance averaged 9.2 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.
