Article Summary:

Atlanta Hawks guard Kevin Huerter has agreed to a four-year, $65 million rookie contract extension, his agents, Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of Priority Sports, told ESPN on Monday.

Huerter, 23, is the latest core member of a young Hawks roster to secure a contract extension. “He’s developed into a versatile, two-way player who can fit any lineup and can play minutes all over the perimeter. We are excited his future is in Atlanta.”

The 6-foot-7 Huerter – who averaged 11.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists in the postseason during the Hawks’ run to the Eastern Conference finals – has shown himself to be a versatile wing player and an ideal backcourt complement to All-Star point guard Trae Young.
