Ja Morant Promises To Buy $15K Watches For Teammates After Signing 5-Year $193 Million Max Extension

Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant just became the highest paid player in Grizzlies history.

The 6-foot-3 guard signed a five-year, $193 million max extension Thursday evening, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal, which won’t become active until the start of 2023-24, could become worth $231 million if Morant makes any of the league’s three All-NBA teams next season.

Ja Morant is now promising to buy $15,000 watches for teammates after the $193 Million max extension.

The former No. 2 overall selection earned the NBA’s most improved player award and was named on the All-NBA second team last season. He averaged 27.4 points, 6.7 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 1.2 steals, shooting 49.3 percent from the floor, 33.4 percent from the 3-point line and 76.1 percent from the free-throw line.

His points, rebounds, steals, field goal percentage and 3-point percentage all marked career highs, as well as his player efficiency rating (24.4) and true-shooting percentage (57.5).

Morant helped lead the Grizzlies to the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, despite the team doing astoundingly well without him — notching a 21-7 record. That’s a testament to the organizational depth from the Grizzlies — spearheaded by Desmond Bane, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Dillon Brooks.
