Entertainment Farke hopes for a signal effect by PLEA extension
Report: Hawks, De’Andre Hunter $20M apart on contract extension
A $20 million gap is large – but not insurmountable. It can be bridged through incentives, options, partial guarantees, trade bonuses and good old fashioned compromise. The extension deadline is months away. Neither side should necessarily cave much this soon. The Spurs just signed Keldon Johnson to a four-year contract extension that’ll be worth $74 million-$80 million. That’ll draw comparisons. However, Hunter has not been as good as Johnson. Hunter should argue that just because Johnson signed a team-friendly deal doesn’t mean Hunter should. But the comparison will get made.
Borussia Mönchengladbach coach Daniel Farke hopes with the contract extension of Alassane Plea for signaling effects for other players. «This is a great sign. It would be good if one or the other player could follow promptly, »Farke told the TV broadcaster Sky on the sidelines of the Bundesliga game against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on Saturday. In particular, the contracts of top performers such as goalkeeper Yann Sommer, international Jonas Hofmann, Ramy Bensebaini or Marcus Thuram run in 2023.
"We are not financially betting on roses because Corona has struck a bit and there are no longer any revenue from international competition," added Farke. That is why the situation is "already challenging to move quality players to contract extensions".
