SIXERS MAXEY GETS 5 YEARS, $203.8M, AND HE’S STILL UNDERPAID!

By Tommy Matthews

Here’s what Sixers president Daryl Morey said after re-signing Tyrese Maxey:

“Tyrese subscribes to the philosophy that every day is a chance to get one percent better and he’s proven that and then some in his first four seasons in the NBA.

“He comes from an amazing family and is one of the hardest workers I’ve ever met. … This extension is a reflection of our belief in Tyrese and I can’t wait to watch his continued evolution as a leader and superstar.”

Maxey’s new deal will start at $35,147,000 (25% of this year’s salary cap) and will be worth a total of $203,852,600. It’ll be fully guaranteed, with no option in year five, Wojnarowski adds (via Twitter).

Maxey initially became eligible for a rookie scale extension last July, but word broke just over a year ago that the Sixers wouldn’t be pursuing a new deal with the rising star at that time, since they wanted to maximize their cap room for 2024.
