This figure could increase to 231 million dollars, meaning one of the largest contracts currently in the NBA. This contract corresponds to the quality of the player, who shows great offensive power with good physical form that if he continues to develop and stay healthy, he could be one of the most dominant players in the league.

The New Orleans team has not yet announced the extension of the agreement, since league rules dictate that it must be signed on July 6.
In this way, the Pelicans ensure their future, with a player who has been criticized for his physique, but who with training and better techniques could be the pillar of this franchise that needs a totally aggressive player in attack and defense.
