Luka Doncic Signs 5-Year Supermax Rookie Extension
The 22-Year Old Slovenian has quickly become one of the NBA's best players in history of the game with plenty of time to grow and evolve. He became the first player in NBA History to become eligible for the designated rookie max extension because he has been voted to the All NBA First-Team twice in his career so far.
Doncic will officially sign the contract on Tuesday in his home country of Slovenia and has spoken on how much signing the supermax extension with the Dallas Mavericks means to him.
"Today is a dream come true. The game of basketball has given me so much and has taken me to so many amazing places. I am humbled and excited to remain in Dallas as a part of the Mavericks." - Luka Doncic told ESPN.
Doncic was the youngest MVP in Euroleague history, winning it with Real Madrid in the 2017-2018 season and was the third overall pick in the 2018 draft. He won NBA's Rookie Of The Year in the 2018/2019 season and has been selected to the NBA All First-Team twice before the age of 23, a feat only accomplished by himself and Kevin Durant.
Doncic recently just finished competing with Slovenia in the olympics in which he led them to their first ever Olympics and to a 17-2 record. He scored 48 points in a single game against Argentina which is second all time for points scored in a game in the Olympics.
There's plenty more to come from the young Slovenian. We're very fortunate to be able to witness it.
