Nikola Jokic, Kyrie Irving, And Bradley Beal Could Sign Record-Breaking Contracts This Offseason

Nikola Jokic, Kyrie Irving, And Bradley Beal Could Sign Record-Breaking Contracts This Offseason

The NBA continues to grow at a rapid pace, and, as more viewers are attracted to the game of basketball, they bring in more revenue for the league. Throughout history, at various points, players' contracts have gotten larger and larger as the revenue grows and it seems like the salary cap could be raised yet again, which would mean bigger deals than ever before. 

Getting a huge deal in the NBA is not just about being elite. That's the qualifier for any player to accumulate contracts that amount to huge amounts, but it's also a question of being in the right place at the right time. And often, some players achieve more than others in a particular period, leading them to earn a massive payday if their timing is right. 

And while the numbers are not exact thanks to the fact that the salary cap has not been revealed yet, Mojo17, an NBA fan on Reddit has pinpointed the three players who could all get the largest contracts in the history of the league this season, Nikola Jokic, Kyrie Irving, and Bradley Beal:

"There are going to be some crazy contracts given out this summer. Note: the numbers are not exact until we know the salary cap.

Kyrie Irving: $246 million over 5 years

Bradley Beal: $246 million over 5 years

Nikola Jokic: $255 to $273 million over 5 years

"All three of these would break the record for largest contract in NBA history. The current record holder is Giannis, with a $228 million contract."

Nikola Jokic is a 2-time MVP and the cornerstone of this Denver Nuggets franchise, and he's likely to sign a supermax deal. Kyrie Irving is a bit more of a concern, seeing as his off-court drama doesn't often die down. Bradley Beal could also take a slightly lower-paying deal to get himself to a contender, but as things stand, all 3 of these players stand to walk away with an amazing amount of cash.
