During the extension’s first year in 2021-22, he will make $34.5 million at 28 years old. The following year, he is slated to make $37.2 million during the player option.

With the way the NBA has been trending with players during their player options, they usually decline it and become a free agent.

The 26-year-old St. Louis, Missouri native was the Wizards’ third overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. He has spent the last seven seasons with the team.

During the 2018-19 season, he appeared in 82 games, including 82 starts. He averaged 25.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.7 blocks in a career-best 36.9 minutes per game.
