Atlanta Hawks forward De’Andre Hunter has agreed to a four-year, $95 million contract extension, his agents Thad Foucher and Joe Smith of Wasserman told ESPN on Monday night.

The deal, agreed to ahead of the 6 p.m. ET deadline for rookie scale extensions, allows Hunter to avoid restricted free agency next summer.

Hunter, 24, averaged 13.4 points in 53 games last season for Atlanta, along with shooting a career-best 37.9% from 3-point range. Hunter’s skillset fits ideally with Atlanta’s blueprint for the future and he joins All-Star Trae Young and forward John Collins on long-term deals as franchise cornerstones.

The combination of Hunter and newly acquired Dejounte Murray on the wings give coach Nate McMillan the kind of defense and athleticism to pair with Young on the perimeter that the Hawks hope will boost their 26th-rated defense from a year ago.

Hunter, the 4th overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft.
