Luka plans to sign supermax extension (200+ Million) 

Post#1 » by HMFFL » Mon Jun 7, 2021 8:44 pm

Luka Doncic said that he definitely plans to sign the supermax extension with Dallas this summer. 

This is essentially just a formality but Dallas fans are just thrilled that he'll be locked up for the next half decade with this news. The bigger question is whether or not the Mavericks are able to get him some actual help this summer, as Kristaps Porzingis turned into a 7-foot traffic cone during the playoffs.

Great news, but I wish he would have waited to share it… Now Donnie Nelson won’t care enough about building around him, having locked him up for 5 years

Signing the extension will give the Mavs a lot of flexibility in improving the team. They won't have to focus on getting a little better for next year instead of getting much better 3 years from now.

AD is the longest I can remember a player having to wait to get out of town when they wanna go, and that was just like end of one season, a summer & then gone by the trade deadline the next season. Usually players get moved when they make enough of a fuss. Look at Harden this year.

Donnie can't relax. Players always hold the cards, in today's league anyways.

No, he will sign this summer. I don't think it was ever an issue despite some extremely hot takes by many Luka fans on RealGM. he is not going anywhere. Just improve the team step by step.

Last year for a max slot...and the FA class is very poor. Classic unlucky Mavs :lol:

Do you really want some kind of an artificially made team of the likes of KD, JH, LBJ, etc to bring a ring? It will be all alright. Not just in the next couple of years.

This is expected. Pressure is now on Donnie to build a team to compete now.

Shlenk and ATL have made moves to surround Trae Young with Capela, Bogdanovic, Galinari etc. He has built more with less considering he's a new GM. Donnie has been sitting in his office all year and his best move was to trade James Johnson for a Youtuber.

Can someone clarify this? Can Dallas sign a max FA first in 2022 then go sign Luka to the supermax extension to go over the cap?

Don’t forget he also traded Curry for Richardson.

Yeah. But Richardson still saw court time. That's 6 fouls to give. Reddick was busy editing Youtube videos in Brooklyn almost all year and is on the Mavericks payroll. Sure he gave a few high fives in Staples center. But you get what I mean.

He was the perfect candidate to not sign the extension and make the Mavs go all-in and build a proper roster. Now they will just bring in JRich type players and next year maybe get to the second round. Luka is screwed in Dallas, most likely.

ATL had multiple lottery picks, and cap space for last off season, Mavs invested their capital in Barnes and KP, imagine the team right now with legit starting SF with size, athleticism and length and 20/10 center who is a good rim protector.
Things didn't turn out as well as expected, but they recovered from Barnes with cap space this year and the KP sitatuin will get better, my guess is that they'll keep him, he improves his value and re-evaluate around the deadline then either trade him around the deadline or keep him.

That's right. It all goes back to GM-ing at a high level. Atlanta's GM was 2 years into his job whereas Donnie has like 15 years over him yet the rookie GM managed to do more than Donnie.

There's concern internally about Luka Doncic’s desire to remain in Dallas long-term, per @TheAthleticNBA

Is it fake?
