Brandon Ingram become eligible for a four-year, $208 million extension this offseason, but sources tell The Athletic that the New Orleans Pelicans are unlikely to offer him that maximum deal.

Trey Murphy is also eligible to sign an extension of his own this offseason, while Zion Williamson, CJ McCollum and Herb Jones already have a combined $84 million owed to them in 25-26.

The Pelicans have never paid the luxury tax in their 22-year history.

If the Pelicans do not trade Ingram or extend him, they run the risk of losing him for nothing as a free agent in 2025.
