Luka Doncic is the first player eligible for the rookie max extension because he made the All-NBA first team twice. At 22, he is the youngest in league history with multiple first-team selections. Luka Doncic also became the youngest MVP in EuroLeague history in 2017-18 and, he won Rookie of the Year in 2018-19. Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks was present at a news conference in Luka Doncic's home country of Slovenia on Tuesday. He said: “I’ve seen when he first came in, the pressure that was on him and the way he dealt with it, how hard he worked. How he recognized that it was always about the team winning and that was what was most important to him. That was always most important to me, whatever we could do to win.” The Dallas Mavericks have not advanced in the playoffs since winning their only championship in 2011.
