Doncic signs US$207m extension with Mavericks

Luka Doncic put pen to paper on a supermax contract extension worth US$207 million assuring the 22-year-old as the centerpiece of the Dallas Mavericks until 2027.

Dallas sent a contingent of owner Mark Cuban, coach Jason Kidd, president of basketball operations Nico Harrison, special adviser Dirk Nowitzki and assistant general manager Michael Finley to Slovenia where Doncic and agent Bill Duffy joined a press conference yesterday. “It’s a really special moment here. Thank you to Dallas for offering this... I never imagined this happening. I was only dreaming of playing in the NBA. Now I can sign an extension with the Dallas Mavericks for five more years.” The extension kicks off in the 2022-23 season. The two-time All-Star was visibly awed by the value of the deal as Kidd reminded him it was time to “get to work.”
