Anunoby, Fultz, Isaac Extensions Highlight the Rookie Scale Deadline Day

The past few days have been busy in the NBA.

Up until 5:00 PM on December 21st, teams were permitted to discuss rookie scale extensions with eligible players. Players unable to come to terms on new deals will enter restricted free agency next offseason.

So as you can imagine, fairly busy time right before Christmas.

Kyle Kuzma was one of the first names to ink a deal, signing a three-year, $40-million deal to remain with the Lakers. More names followed on Monday as OG Anunoby re-upped with the Raptors on a four-year, $72-million deal. Jonathan Isaac and Markelle Fultz were extended by the Orlando Magic four-and three-year deals worth $80-million and $50-million apiece. The San Antonio Spurs came to terms with Derrick White on a four-year, $73-million extension, while Luke Kennard signed a four-year, $64-million deal with his new team, the Los Angeles Clippers.

The most notable names to not come to terms with their respective teams at the deadline were John Collins, Lauri Markkanen, and Lonzo Ball.
