Masai Ujiri said that he plans on signing Pascal Siakam to a long-term deal, whether it be before the start of this season or heading into next summer.

"Whether it's going to be this fall or this summer, he's definitely someone we're going to keep here (long-term)," said Ujiri.

Siakam, who will make $2.35 million next season, is eligible for an extension before October 21st. 

Siakam's camp is reportedly looking to sign a max extension worth $170 million over five years, according to Josh Lewenberg of TSN.
