Nets' extension eligible scoring threat primed for career year


The Brooklyn Nets doled out a four -year, $100 million contract extension for big man Nic Claxton this past week. 

Brooklyn's center is entering his fifth year since being drafted with the Nets and will be here for the foreseeable future. 

The Nets have a young, dynamic scorer that is due for an extension, Cam Thomas. 

Thomas may very well compile serious scoring numbers with the Nets rebuild underway and no bonafide scorers on the roster. 

Thomas is entering the final year of his four-year rookie deal. Thomas will turn 23 this year and averages 22.5 points per game last season in an expanded role in the Nets offense.

With Thomas likely handed the keys to the team, expecting him to knock on the door or blast through the 30 point per game threshold is realistic. 

Sean Marks' intentions are always shrouded in mystery, so he could very well be in talks behind the scenes to lock things up long-term. 

Until an official report of an extension comes through, if Thomas starts the season without the extension, it may end up costing Brooklyn a pretty penny after he puts up career numbers in 2024-25.
