The 23-year old will not be eligible for a $32 million bonus to his rookie extension he signed last offseason. Tatum would have been qualified to receive 30% of the NBA salary cap -- also known as the "Rose Rule" -- if he made one of the three All-NBA teams, but will now make 25% of the cap for the duration of the deal that will kick in at the start of the 2021-22 campaign.

It costs him $32.6 million. His new salary will be 25% of the cap or $163 million over 5 years (final year is player option)
Could have been worth $195.6 million if he made one of three teams.
