Zion Williamson, Ja Morant to sign max extensions right away:

Adrian Wojnarowski has recently reported that Zion Williamson and Ja Morant will get rookie max extensions “out the gate” with their teams. It is quite obvious that the two are extremely valuable players to their franchises. Expect Zion Williamson along with Ja Morant, who is the No. 2 pick in his draft those are going to be quick, max deal agreements out of the gate.

More on this storyline:

Bob Myers on Andre Iguodala’s reaction to 2019 trade: “I remember him looking at me like, ‘I understand,'” Myers recalls. “He wasn’t like, ‘Screw you.’ He was as professional as you can get. He’s so smart, he wasn’t shocked by it. ” -via ESPN / June 8, 2022:

“I was crushed,” Kerr says. “Like, ‘Oh my god, I can not believe we are losing part of our soul.'” Kerr called Iguodala. “He said something like, ‘Sorry, coach, I’m not surprised,'” Kerr remembers. “He probably knew it was coming before I did.” -via ESPN / June 7, 2022:
