Why can Doncic become the NBA’s first $70 million-a-season man?

Luka Doncic’s upcoming contract extension should make him the first player in NBA history to earn $70 million in a single season. The 24-year-old Dallas Mavericks superstar is making NBA history, and if he makes the All-NBA team once again, he will be eligible for the NBA supermax contract extension that will one day earn him the highest single-season payout in NBA history.

“Doncic is about to become the first $70 million player in NBA history.”, reported ESPN’s Bobby Marks. “Should he become All-NBA in 2023-24, Doncic would be eligible to sign a $318 million five-year extension. He will not be able to sign the extension in 2024 because he will have only six years of service, but he will have met the criteria (All-NBA in two of the immediately preceding three seasons) and will be eligible to sign an extension in 2025 that would be triggered by the 2026-27 season.”

If the salary cap increases as currently projected, the final year of this potential extension of Luka Doncic’s supermax contract would be $83.6 million.

Jamal Murray, De’Aaron Fox, Pascal Siakam, Brandon Ingram, Bam Adebayo, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander may be eligible for a supermax extension next season, but none of them will reach $70 million in a single season before Doncic.
