RJ Barrett’s contract extension is a straight four years, per source. No options on the final season. And yes, the @RealCharlieWard curse is over. – 1:11 PM

Donovan Mitchell trade update from @Adrian Wojnarowski on @Get Up:
– RJ Barrett was indeed the centerpiece of trade discussions between Jazz and Knicks
– Jazz covet unprotected draft picks from New York
– Utah has no traction with other teams
– Jazz still value Barrett after extension pic.twitter.com/aBlIz0gFS311:39 AM

As talks between the New York Knicks and Utah Jazz complicate with an RJ Barrett extension, both teams have decisions to make as we head into the home stretch of the offseason. A story on what a potential Donovan Mitchell deal now looks like, is here – theathletic.com/3549270/2022/0…11:16 AM

* Is the Donovan Mitchell trade with the New York dead after RJ Barrett signed?
* I argue this puts more pressure on the Knicks than before they signed RJ

Quick thoughts on RJ Barrett, NYK & UTA:
-Good deal for Barrett and NYK. I think he’s going to be an All-Star eventually.
-Doesn’t end the Mitchell talks. As many have said, a little harder. But deal was always going to include a big salary (Fournier or Rose) heading out. – 8:33 AM

RJ Barrett is first Knick 1st-round pick to sign second deal w/club since 1999; earlier this month, there was pessimism about Jazz-NYK finding common ground on Donovan Mitchell trade if deal didn’t include Barrett. More on that & Barrett’s historic stats: sny.tv/articles/knick…7:49 AM

Jazz had coveted RJ Barrett in Donovan Mitchell trade talks w/Knicks. Barrett’s extension takes him off the table in those talks for obvious reasons, including ‘poison pill’ provision that makes it very difficult to trade player on rookie extension before extension takes effect. – 11:47 PM
Tom Ziller @teamziller
Either RJ Barrett’s agent is trying to get his rich 22 y/o client traded from NYC to SLC (lol) or the Knicks are dangling Barrett’s extension as bait to pull Trade Danny off the fence (kinda gross). Basketball! – 11:46 PM

On vacation right now, so I won’t be writing about RJ Barrett’s extension, but I wrote a detailed article earlier this summer about how people around the league value Barrett & and the complications behind extension negotiations for him. Here it is: theathletic.com/3385597/2022/0…11:37 PM

Here’s how the poison pill in RJ Barrett’s new contract works in trades.
To the Knicks as outgoing salary, he counts for his 2022-23 salary: $10.9 million.
To the Jazz, as incoming salary, he counts as the average of all five seasons he’s signed for: roughly $26.2 million. – 11:35 PM

RJ Barrett gets $120 million.
Jalen Brunson gets $100 million.
I think if you polled NBA Twitter, most would say Brunson is a better player. He even had the open market boosting him. This is just more proof that this is a wing’s league. I think Barrett will look underpaid soon. – 11:27 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
League source confirms @Adrian Wojnarowski report – deal still being finalized between the Knicks and RJ Barrett on a four-year rookie extension worth up to $120 million. This keeps the 22-year-old Barrett in place with the team. – 11:26 PM

my SCALDING-HOT take: rj barrett is good, his extension is fine, and it in no way complicates donovan mitchell trade talks given the direction in which utah is headed. – 11:19 PM

As I wrote last month:
~$120M for RJ Barrett feels like an overpay … until you look at the upcoming cap situation and realize it’s virtually impossible to overpay on a rookie extension right now.

More on this storyline

NBA Central: The Utah Jazz rejected a Knicks trade offer of RJ Barrett and 2 unprotected first-round picks for Donovan Mitchell, per @Shams Charania “That was not deemed close enough by the Utah Jazz” pic.twitter.com/DblZd6H3ra -via Twitter @TheNBACentral / August 30, 2022
According to a source, the Knicks are “hopeful” they can pull off a Mitchell deal without Barrett. The source says the Knicks would not have come to this Barrett decision if they felt it would kill the trade. -via New York Post / August 30, 2022
“Utah never wanted to be the team to pay (Barrett) — let New York overpay for a decent but not top-of-the-line player,” one coaching source said. “But Mitchell can wind up in NY as soon as they come to an agreement on how many No. 1 draft picks are included.” Toppin, shooting guard Quentin Grimes and Evan Fournier’s contract are the likeliest trio in a deal along with the picks. -via New York Post / August 30, 2022
