    I'd actually love if we extend him now. If DeRozan is in fact gone, Lonnie's scoring numbers will go up and it will cost a lot more to resign him when he becomes a restricted FA

    This dude is probably gone because of Primo.

    I'd extend him. Probably could get him extended somewhat cheaply this summer and then, worst case, have a tradeable contract on a young player if he continues to lag in his development.

    But I agree, he may take some strides with DeRozan likely gone. I mean, someone's got to replace DeRozan taking every late shot of every Spurs game in the 2nd and 4th quarters. That will add 160 shots per season to his resume right there.

    Not so sure. I think Primo is at least two years away from being worthy of any minutes. If DDR is gone, they likely will need Lonnie. But maybe they let him play out his rookie contract and then see.

    If you can extend him for $10mil/season or less, do it imo.

    He might be a worse defender than Forbes.

    Nothing will happen with his extension until the last second -- which I assume is some point in October like usual.

    Would make sense so walkers numbers would look better and he would get more $
    Maybe one day he can be as rich as the liberal owner of Amazon

    He's average and superfluous.

    So I fully expect a sizeable extension.

    I like Lonnie as a person, but think he shouldn't be extended. I mean Kyle had shown more at this equivalent point and they didn't extend him as I recall.

    Mikal Bridges got 4 yrs/$90 mil, which is a win for Phoenix. I think Lonnie could be signed for something like 4/40, which would be fine because it'd be less yearly than his cap hold, but not sure the Spurs value him that much.

    They are doing the right thing not extending him now. Let the market dictate how much they should pay him because he honestly still has a way to go as a player to actually earn heavy NBA minutes.

    hopefully he balls out this season and earns a good pay day with our (or any other) team. If he plays like he deserves what Bridges just received then that means we will be better as a team overall.

    Agree. Lonnie still has a lot to prove. And that should give him the hunger to prove it

    Not that I could claim to know him, but he strikes me as the kind of guy who'd play better and more relaxed having a contract's security, especially since he's somewhat injury prone. His advanced stats have been so bad that he and his agent must be concerned about the value of potential offers next summer.

    They’re not NOT extending him, at this point. IIRC, both DJs and White’s extensions happened on the last day. They have an offer on the table, and I’m sure Lonnie and his representatives have a figure they want. If the Spurs think that the number they have offered is wildly below market, they may make a final offer to avoid having to match next summer. If not, the extension deadline will pass, and he’ll play for the QO, and be restricted next summer.

    I'm assuming he won't be extended and have been since Primo was drafted. It's probably worth more to the team to get a contract-year performance out of Lonnie and then trade him or let him walk than to try to get a discount on signing him now anyway. If Pop were going to get through to Walker, you'd think he would've done so by now. I think it'll take a different coach to do that, if anyone does.

    God I hope the Spurs don't have any offer on the table for Walker. Let him walk next summer, he's an awful player.

    This.

    Anyway, can someone confirm this is the last day to extend him? Or is it tomorrow?
