Josh Okogie was the No. 20 pick in 2018, and did not reach a contract extension before today’s deadline.
11 players from that class signed extensions — including Kevin Huerter for $16.25M per + Grayson Allen for $10M per. Okogie will now be a restricted free agent this summer. pic.twitter.com/5VcdHYQEeq7:25 PM

The Hawks have extended Kevin Huerter, a versatile player capable of plugging in basically anywhere they need him.
He’s a great passer + 3-point shooter, blossomed as a defender last year and showed he can deliver in big games:

My initial reaction to Kevin Huerter’s extension is it’s great value for the Hawks. I think he’s one of the better young wings in the NBA. He showed last season that he’s continuing to grow defensively, can be trusted with the ball and has the potential to shoot 40% from 3. – 5:38 PM

I spoke with Kevin Huerter last week about his growth in the league and where he wants to take his game next. He’s now secured with a four-year, $65 million contract extension with the Hawks.
