Atlanta Hawks have agreed to a four-year rookie-scale extension with Kevin Huerter. The shooting guard signed a deal worth $65 million, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
He became the second player of the team’s 2018 draft class to sign a long-term extension, joining star point guard Trae Young.
Huerter averaged 11.9 points, 3.5 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 69 regular season games. He had an important role in the Hawks’ deep playoff run during the 2020-21 season.
The sharpshooting forward appeared in 18 games during the last postseason, having 10 starts under his belt. He finished with 11.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per contest.
Monday was the last day for the NBA franchises to sign a rookie scale extension with any player eligible. The regular season starts Wednesday.
