The odds are against center Mason Plumlee reaching a rookie scale extension agreement with the Trail Blazers before Monday’s deadline, tweets Jason Quick of CSNNW. If no deal is reached, Plumlee will become a restricted free agent next summer, which Quick says wouldn’t be a surprise.
Plumlee is beginning his second year with Portland and his fourth in the NBA. He is making $2,328,530 this season.
Plumlee started all 82 games for the Blazers in 2015/16 after coming to the team in a deal with the Nets. He averaged 9.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists in a little more than 25 minutes per game.
