Nik Stauskas said Thursday that he has not had contract extension talks with the 76ers. This season’s deadline to extend contracts in the final year of a player’s rookie deal is Oct. 16. The reserve guard isn’t exactly surprised. “Obviously, I haven’t had the type of seasons in the past that would warrant me getting a big-time extension,” Stauskas said. “I know that. I have so much more to prove. I have so much more to work for. So in terms of like getting an extension, my mind has not been on that.”
Stauskas: It’s been really fun. It’s different, man, because I’m so used to being on the receiving end of the question. So now I’m asking them, getting to kick back and get their perspective about these experiences and also get to comment on how the games are going. I think I have a pretty good knowledge of basketball, and I enjoy speaking about it, so it’s a fun experience for me. FTW: Clear-cut future profession for you when you’re done playing? Do you want to go into this? Stauskas: We’ll see. Hopefully. I’m getting a little better at it every day, so hopefully we can keep it going.
FTW: What’s the best question you’ve asked? Stauskas: Ooh. You know, I went up to Gordon Hayward today and I asked — he has the exact same hair and exact same beard as me, so I asked him, “Are you copying my swag or am I copying your swag? Which one is it?” And he was like, “I’m an All-Star. I think you’re copying my swag.” So fair enough, touché.
