Ben Simmons officially

Ben Simmons has become one of the best Australian athletes in the hands of a huge renewed contract with Philadelphia 76ers.

Shortly after reaching an oral agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers, Ben Simmons officially "settled the deal" with the team that reached the Game 7 of the Eastern semi-finals last season.

According to the reporter Shams Charania, Ben Simmons officially signed an extension contract with 76ers. This max contract was valued at nearly $ 170 million over a five-year period in the hope of keeping Simmons in Philly until the end of the 2025-26 season.

With a contract of up to US $ 170 million (equivalent to A $ 241 million), Ben Simmons will officially become the highest paid Australian athlete in the world.

Beginning in the 2020-21 season, Ben Simmons will begin to receive a massive salary of more than A $ 41 million (equivalent to US $ 29,250 million), far ahead of second place owner Jason Day (attending about A $ 19 million or fellow compatriots in NBA like Patty Mills (A $ 17.8 million), Joe Ingles (A $ 15.5 million), Dante Exum (A $ 14.2 million) and Aron Baynes (A $ 7.8 million).

According to the new NBA salary fund ($ 117 million), below will be the seasonal salary that Ben Simmons will receive:

2020-21: $ 29,250 million

2021-22: 31,590 million dollars

2022-23: 33,390 million

2024-25: $ 36,270 million

2025-26: 38,610 million dollars

Total: 169,550 million

In addition, Ben Simmons has the ability to qualify for higher bonus levels thanks to the "Rose Rule".

Named after Derrick Rose, this rule allows players to sign a new contract with a dark value (rookie scale max extension), which is entitled to up to 30% of the team's salary fund if certain items are reached. According to Rose Rule, the achievements to be rewarded include the MVP title, Defensive Player of the Year or entering any All-NBA team.

Consider the case of Ben Simmons, although he is unlikely to win the MVP or Defensive Player of The Year title, but being selected into the All-NBA team is a fully achievable goal.

Ben Simmons just had a good season, averaging 16.9 points and 8.8 rebounds and 7.7 assists per game. Although there have been some rumors that 76ers will try to trade Simmons to find a new direction, everything was extinguished when Philly decided to renew his contract with a defender born in Melbourne, Australia.
