The Dallas Mavericks and superstar Luka Doncic agreed to a historic contract extension on Aug. 9. Luka became the first-ever player to qualify for the Rose Rule extension the moment he signed the deal because the 22-year-old was named first-team All-NBA each of the last two years. Others have qualified by making the All-NBA team after agreeing to the extension, but Doncic is already locked in at the massive number.

It is a five-year extension worth a projected $207 million. Luka has a player option in 2026 worth $47.1 million. The Mavs were ecstatic to lock him in for the next five years as they continue to try to build a title contender around the 22-year-old.

Doncic’s massive extension had his teammates excited too. They took to social media hilariously looking to collect debts the Mavs superstar owes. Let us take a closer look.

Dallas Mavericks teammates look to collect debts after Luka Doncic’s extension

J.J. Redick took to Twitter to try to collect his winnings from a card game from Doncic.

Jalen Brunson hilariously chimed in about the debts Luka owes him too.

Fans know that the 22-year-old superstar loves to try to do the impossible. Whether it is hitting a trick shot or coming back from down big in a game. Former coach Rick Carlisle talked about refusing to bet with Doncic because he lost so much money to him last season, but it appears like Luka will have a few payouts to make from his massive extension.

The Dallas Mavericks and Luka Doncic are happy the deal is done. The 22-year-old superstar is going to expand his charitable efforts with the new massive contract, and the organization is dancing that they have him locked in long-term. The two sides will look to take the next step together this season. Do not miss it.
