Devin Vassell, former Florida State star, signs massive contract extension with Spurs
Devin Vassell has reportedly agreed to a longterm contract extension with the San Antonio Spurs.
That’s per a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who says the deal is worth $146 million over the next 5 seasons. Vassell is still under contract for the 2023-24 NBA season, so this new contract will begin in 2024-25.
Vassell, who picked No. 11 overall by the Spurs in the 2020 NBA Draft, has become an important part of San Antonio’s rebuild. Last season, he averaged 18.5 points per game while upping his 3-point percentage to 38.7%.
The former Florida State star has also established himself as a strong defender on the perimeter.
Vassell will now be a part of the Spurs’ longterm core, which also includes 2023 No. 1 overall pick Victor Wembanyama.
Vassell is 1 of just 6 players from the 2020 draft class to sign an extension so far, per ESPN’s report. Anthony Edwards, LaMelo Ball, Tyrese Haliburton, Isaiah Stewart and Desmond Bane are the other players who have done so to this point.
Vassell and the Spurs will play their first preseason game next Monday against Oklahoma City.
