Labor Deal May Include Rookie Extensions After Year 2


There’s a real chance, I’m told, that the forthcoming labor deal will enable teams to sign prized first-round draft choices to extensions after Year 2 of their rookie-scale deals.

Players are currently eligible for such extensions after Year 3, resulting in the mega-contracts we saw over the summer for Portland’s C.J. McCollum and Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo and the flurry of deals (Rudy Gobert, Steven Adams, Victor Oladipo, etc.) we just witnessed on Halloween.
