Despite the upheaval and uncertainity ongoing with the Dallas Mavericks front office this offseason, sources tell The Athletic that Luka Doncic still intends to sign a five-year, $200 million-plus contract extension this offseason.
Doncic told reporters at a Slovenian national team press conference held Thursday that it was difficult to hear about Donnie Nelson’s departure. Sources say Doncic held a good, long-standing relationship with since meeting Nelson as a teenager. “But I’m not the one making decisions,” he said.
The overarching concern with the situation for the Mavericks is their ability to retain Doncic long-term.
