DeMarcus Cousins intends to sign a contract extension with the Sacramento Kings worth an estimated $207 million over five years.
Cousins and the Kings have discussed numbers and a deal will be done in the offseason barring a late change in direction by either side.
Under the new CBA, Cousins is in line for the league’s designated player exception, which allows Sacramento to give their franchise cornerstone an additional five-years on top of his current deal, keeping him with the Kings through the 22-23 season.
Cousins can sign for a starting salary up to 35 percent of the salary cap.
Cousins previously signed a four-year max contract in September of 2013 that was set to expire in 2018.
