Dribble Chat Podcast: Episode 3 – Evaluating 2017 draft rookie extensions


Whenever the offseason comes, NBA teams will have to make decisions about rookie scale contract extensions for their players drafted in 2017. Lucas, Mark, and Tom come together and make a tier system of how they believe teams will give out extensions.

  • Tier 1: Players who get max contract extensions. (1:21)
  • Tier 2: Players who get extensions, but not a max. (7:05)
  • Tier 3: Players we aren’t sure will get an extension. (22:48)
  • Tier 4: Players that probably won’t get an extension but will get another job in the NBA. (36:57)
  • Players that didn’t qualify for the tiers. (48:19)
  • Players whose future in the NBA is in doubt. (54:19)
