Duncan Robinson has had quite a presence in the Miami Heat and the NBA record books. He currently holds the record for the most threes by a Heat player in a season, the most threes by an undrafted player in a season, and in the NBA Finals, and he is the fastest player to collect 500 shots from behind the bow.
All of these accomplishments resulted in Duncan Robinson signing the largest undrawn player contract in NBA history. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, he signed a five-year extension for $ 90 million this week.
Duncan Robinson – host of the @TheLongshotPod – Has agreed to a 5-year $ 90 million contract to stay with Miami Heat, his agent Jason Glushon from @GlushonSM says ESPN. The deal, the largest to date for an undrawn player, also includes an ETO after the fourth year.

The Athletic’s John Hollinger reports that although the market for Robinson was in the $ 16 million to $ 18 million range, the Heat would match the offers for him.
“One thing seems clearer – League sources expect the price for Duncan Robinson to be in the range of $ 18 million a year and that the Heat will likely be in line with the restricted free agent’s offerings at that price point.”
Last season, Robinson averaged 13.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game due to an impressive 40.8 percent shot performance from behind the three-point line. Duncan finished fifth in the NBA behind Stephen Curry, Buddy Hield, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.
