Rookie scale extension season seems to have begun early this year, with Jonas Valanciunas and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist having come to terms in back-to-back weeks. Anthony Davis and Damian Lillard signed their max extensions in July. Still, plenty more names remain on the list of players eligible for rookie scale extensions, and while veteran extensions are much more rare, a reasonable case can be made for some of those on that list, too.
As we did last year and in years before, we’ll be profiling several extension candidates with in-depth analysis. The pieces will discuss the merits of an extension for player and team, dissect the market forces at play, and project the outcome of negotiations.
Below are links to the posts we’ve done so far. We’ll add links to this page as we continue the project in the months ahead. You can access this list anytime from the right sidebar under the Hoops Rumors Features menu.
