The San Antonio Spurs are keen on their little protege. According to information from The Athletic, the NBA franchise has offered Keldon Johnson $80 million. The latter, who won the title of Olympic champion last summer, is therefore now linked to his current training until 2027. Consequently, it is he who will be brought, from next season, to be the leader of the Spurs, if we are to believe this new contract offered to it by its current leaders. Even more since the departure of Dejounte Murray, transferred to the Atlanta Hawks. It was during the 2019 edition that Johnson was drafted. His rookie season then took place between the G-League but also the NBA.

Popovich had taken him to Tokyo

Thereafter, the rear (or winger) had become a more than important element in the workforce of San Antonio, especially in anticipation of the future. Moreover, as recently as last year, the main interested party averaged 17 points and 6 rebounds, also with percentages of 47% on shots and 40% on three-pointers. Before being extended until the year 2027, it had the possibility of being extended a year in advance, which was well and truly done, as it also happened to Ja Morant or even to Zion Williamson. His coach, namely Gregg Popovich, had also selected him, with the United States, for Tokyo, during the Olympic Games, replacing Bradley Beal. Proof of his trust.
