Bam Adebayo and the Miami Heat are working on a contract extension, the team said Tuesday. Once the deal is finalized, Adebayo - when factoring in his current salary - would be guaranteed at least $168 million over the next six seasons and perhaps as much as $200 million in that span. Adebayo will make $5.1 million this season, the final year of his rookie contract.
The Athletic’s Shams Charania reports sides will agree to a 5-year, $163 million deal. 23-year-old big man is eligible for rookie max that could reach $195.6 million.
