How An All-NBA Team Selection Means Millions

  • Devin Booker and Karl-Anthony Towns are now eligible for supermax extensions worth $211M.
  • Trae Young's rookie max contract increased by roughly $35M for making All-NBA.

Tuesday’s All-NBA Team cemented the reputations of several next-generation stars — but represented a bonanza for three particular bank accounts.

Regardless of ranking, Devin Booker, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Trae Young are the biggest winners — and millions of dollars richer.

Making one of the three All-NBA Teams can unlock enormous paydays via contract incentives — especially in the case of Young, who had clauses for unguaranteed money from last offseason’s rookie max extension.

  • Young’s deal now jumps from $176.9M to $212.3M in guaranteed money.
  • Booker is now eligible for a four-year, $211M supermax contract, which would be the largest in Suns history.
  • Towns is eligible to sign the same deal as Booker — the extension would start at $47.1M in 2024 and finish at $58.4M in 2027-28.

The Grizzlies’ Ja Morant made the second team, but a year too early. He’s eligible for a five-year, $186 million extension this summer — without a bonus from this year’s bid. 

That figure would rise to $223 million if he makes an All-NBA team next season.

However the nominations affect stars’ wallets, the NBA has clearly ushered in a new era: This is the first time since 1954-55 that the entire First Team is 27 or younger.
