Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic agrees to a 5-year, $ 207 million extension with the Mavs in the NBA.
As expected, Luka Doncic agreed to a supermax rookie extension with the Dallas Mavericks worth $ 207 million over five years in the NBA.
As ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski noted, Doncic is the first player eligible for the maximum designated rookie extension due to the fact that he has been voted for the All-NBA first team twice and has already started in two All-Star games in just his career. first three years in the league.
A delegation from the Dallas Mavericks led by Dirk Nowitzki and Mark Cuban arrived in Slovenia this afternoon to offer Luka Doncic a 5-year, $ 207 million contract extension.
Luka Doncic is expected to sign the contract in Slovenia on Tuesday. As previously reported, Mavs special adviser Dirk Nowitzki will be joined by team owner Mark Cuban, new head coach Jason Kidd, general manager Nico Harrison and vice president of basketball operations Michael Finley in the country of Luka’s origin to formally present the offer.
While the supermax extension isn’t surprising, it’s certainly good news for Dallas that they’ve locked out their star player and the face of the franchise for the long haul. Now, they can shift their focus to building a championship contender around them. (Fielding)
