Luka Doncic is set to land a five-year, $202 million extension with the Dallas Mavericks after his run in the Tokyo Olympics comes to an end, The Stein Line reported Monday.

Doncic, 22, is entering the final year of his contract and set to earn $10.2 million this season. He is eligible for the rookie supermax extension.

Doncic is currently in Japan, leading his home country of Slovenia into the Olympics quarterfinals. Slovenia plays Germany on Monday night.

The two-time All-NBA pick and 2019 Rookie of the Year averaged 25.7 points, 8.4 rebounds and 7.7 assists in 199 games (all starts) for the Mavericks since he entered the NBA. He was taken No. 3 overall in the 2018 draft by the Atlanta Hawks, who then flipped him to Dallas for Trae Young and a 2019 first-round pick (Cam Reddish).

The Mavericks finished first in the Southwest Division this past season but were bounced in the first round by the Los Angeles Clippers in seven games. Doncic averaged 35.7 points, 10.3 assists and 7.9 rebounds in the series.
