More on Mikal Bridges Extension

Kellan Olson: On a potential contract extension, Mikal Bridges said he obviously wants to stay in Phoenix and loves it here. “I sit there, just wait every day, keep improving and don’t let it get to me. Just gotta wait. I’ve tried to prove as much as I can as time goes on.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: Mikal Bridges is another player that has a lot of interest in the marketplace. If he has to go into restricted free agency, I think people see him as a $20 million a year plus player
Phoenix could face a money crunch soon. Devin Booker is locked into a well-deserved maximum contract. Chris Paul can enter free agency. Ayton and Mikal Bridges will be eligible for extensions this summer; most No. 1 overall picks start negotiations at "max or nothing," and rival executives expect Bridges' deal might approach $20 million per season.
