James Harden has agreed to the largest extension in NBA history, agreeing to a deal that will pay him $ 227.9 million over the next six seasons.
The Houston Rockets have confirmed the signing.
As a member of the NBA’s All-NBA team this past season, Harden became eligible for a Designated Player Extension (DPE).
Harden is still owed $ 58.7 million over the next two seasons. The extension will add four more years to the deal, with those four seasons worth a total of $ 169.2 million, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN, giving Harden’s total deal an average annual value of $ 38.0 million.
Harden’s salaries in his new extension will start at $ 37.8 million and will grow by 8% each year, reaching $ 46.8 million in the 2022-23 season.
