The Brown contract continues a string of lucrative deals for NBA stars that rise in lockstep with the salary cap, which is tied to leaguewide revenue.

The NBA now represents 32 of the 50 biggest contracts in North American sports by annual value, and 76 players are set to make at least $20 million next season, according to Spotrac.

The final value of the Brown and Lillard deals will be based on future NBA salary caps. The current figures are estimates based on the projected caps. The NBA salary cap will see a bump from the next round of TV contracts, which will kick in during the 2025-26 season.

His teammate, Jayson Tatum, is also eligible for a supermax extension next season. Brown will make $31.8 million in the final year of his current contract, and the new deal is projected to start at $52.3 million during the 2024-25 season. The final year is worth $69.1 million.
