Luka Doncic On His $207 Million Supermax Rookie Extension: "Today Is A Dream Come True... I'm Humbled And Excited To Remain In Dallas As Part Of The Mavericks."

Luka Doncic was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, and he was viewed as a prospect who could potentially become a superstar. The Dallas Mavericks certainly thought so and traded up to acquire him from the Atlanta Hawks. There is no question that Luka Doncic has succeeded in becoming that superstar. Luka Doncic has already made two All-NBA teams, and he averaged 27.7 PPG, 8.0 RPG, and 8.6 APG this season. He is only 22, and it is clear that the ceiling is wide open for him.

A talent of Luka Doncic's caliber is a player you want to keep on your team at all costs. The Dallas Mavericks clearly know that, and as such, they have signed Luka Doncic to a $207M extension. 

It looks like Luka Doncic will be in Dallas for the foreseeable future. It is now up to the Dallas Mavericks to build a better team around him, and potentially win a championship. They have been eliminated in the first round over the last few years, and hopefully, they'll do better in the upcoming seasons. There is no doubt that Luka Doncic is a superstar that can carry a team offensively: now, the Mavericks just need a bit more offensive firepower, and they'll be a playoff team for years to come.
