Rockets Sign Harden To Largest NBA Contract, Lonzo Ball’s Debut, Fultz Sprained Ankle


The Houston Rockets signed James Harden to the largest contract in NBA history. After Harden made the NBA All-Star Team, he was eligible for a designated player extension which combined with his $118 million extension signed last July, boosts him to a $228 million contract until the end of his contract in 2022.

The Los Angeles Lakers Lonzo Ball (#2 pick in the draft) had a rough start to his NBA Summer League debut going only 2 of 15 shooting against the Los Angeles Clippers. He came back strong, however, the next night with his first triple double in the pros. Not surprisingly, Ball is bringing the fans out with over 17,000 tickets sold for Saturday night’s game. He’s even wearing his Big Baller Brand shoes.

In other summer league news, the Philadelphia 76ers #1 pick Markelle Fultz suffered a sprained ankle Saturday night in a matchup with the Golden State Warriors. He will miss the rest of Summer League, but is expected to be back to normal activities in 1-2 weeks.
