Ja Morant signed a record-breaking contract extension this offseason. One of his goals with 2that newfound wealth is to buy his teammates Rolex watches. Morant’s contract is a five-year deal worth $193 million. The deal could become worth $231 million if Morant makes an All-NBA team this season. “It’s just a matter of time,” Morant said of getting his teammates Rolex watches. “My bread got to kick in first. I’m still broke. Next year, when I get my money.”
Morant will sometimes be watching Desmond Bane’s highlights and text him with a compliment. This was also showcased in Morant’s YouTube series, when he was shown watching film while on the sidelines at a Nike AAU game. “I watch these guys probably more than they watch themselves,” Morant said. “Just to learn my teammates.” Yes, even the rookies that don’t have NBA film yet. “I study they college film and seeing where their spots at on the floor,” Morant added. “Now I know when I’m running the offense, where to put them exact guys at.”
“We tried to develop plans for Jake [LaRavia], David [Roddy], Kennedy [Chandler], Junior [Kenneth Lofton], some of our other younger players. I see Ziaire [Williams] taking a jump in year two, Santi [Aldama] taking a jump in year two. We want these guys to attack this season with a mentality that they’re going to be in the rotation.”
