Taking NBA free agency to the absolute max!

Tyrese Maxey has agreed in principle to a five-year, $204-million maximum contract extension to stay with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to reports by ESPN.

He is expected to sign the deal Saturday when the league's free agency signing moratorium ends.

The all-star guard had a break-out 2023-2024 season, being named the NBA's Most Improved Player award and winning the NBA Sportsmanship Award.

The 76ers trailed by six points with 28 seconds remaining in regulation before Maxey pulled out a comeback that evoked memories of Reggie Miller’s eights points in nine seconds for Indiana at Madison Square Garden in 1995.

Maxey finished the season, his fourth in the league, averaging 25.9 points, 6.2 assists, and 1 steal per game. 

His reported deal comes as nine-time all-star Paul George is set to join the 76ers on a $212 million free-agent deal, sources say.
