San Antonio Spurs guard Devin Vassell agreed on a five-year, $146 million contract extension, keeping him in Silver and Black for the foreseeable future as the club enters a new era.
The Story: ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Vassell and the Spurs came to an agreement, cementing himself as one of the main core of young players.
- Vassell averaged 18.5 points during the 2022-23 season before missing time with a knee injury.
- The move will pair Vassell with Victor Wembanyama and Jeremy Sochan as the Spurs’ next big three.
Staying put: The move comes just hours after the Spurs held their annual media day, where Vassell was asked about his new deal.
- “I want to be a Spur for a long time,” Vassell said. “I can’t say anything else.”
Plenty of cash: The move gives the Spurs between $45-60M of cap space next offseason, allowing them to have money to spend to build around the newest young core.
