Desmond Bane has signed a five-year, $207 million contract extension with the Memphis Grizzlies, the team announced on Friday. The deal is the largest in Grizzlies history.
Bane, 24, is coming off a breakout season in which he averaged 18.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. He was a key contributor to the Grizzlies’ playoff run, averaging 19.5 points per game in the postseason.
The Grizzlies are betting on Bane to continue his development and become a star player in the NBA. He is a versatile scorer who can shoot from the perimeter and create his own shot off the dribble. He is also a good defender and rebounder.
The deal with Bane is a sign that the Grizzlies are committed to building a championship contender. They have already made a number of moves to improve their roster this offseason, including trading for All-Star guard Ja Morant and signing free agent forward Jaren Jackson Jr. to a five-year, $193 million contract.
With Bane, Morant, and Jackson Jr. leading the way, the Grizzlies are hoping to make a deep run in the playoffs next season.
