Pelicans sign McCollum to 2-year, $64M extension
The extension, which will begin at the start of the 2024-25 season, ties McCollum to the Pelicans for a total of four years and $133 million.
McCollum was a key part of New Orleans' late-season surge after being traded from the Portland Trail Blazers midway through the campaign.
The 31-year-old averaged 24.3 points and 5.8 assists per game while with the Pelicans, which would have marked career highs over a full season. He also helped lead the team to a playoff berth and push the top-seeded Phoenix Suns to six games.
McCollum will be counted on once again to be a top scorer and veteran presence on a young team that's bringing back star forward Zion Williamson into the mix this season.
