Duncan Robinson has been quite a presence on the Miami Heat and in the NBA record books. He currently holds the record for the most threes by a Heat player in a season, the most threes by an undrafted player in a season, as well as in the NBA Finals and he’s the fastest player to collect 500 shots from behind the arc.
All of those accomplishments added up to Duncan Robinson signing the largest contract by an undrafted player in NBA history. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, he’s signed a five-year, $90 million extension this week.

The Athletic’s John Hollinger reports that even though the market for Robinson was in the $16-$18 million range, the Heat would match the offers for him.
“One thing that seems more clear – League sources expect the price on Duncan Robinson to land in the $18 million a year range, and that the Heat will likely match offers on the restricted free agent at this price point,”
Last season, Robinson averaged 13.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game on the strength of an impressive shooting display of 40.8 percent from behind the three-point line. Duncan finished fifth in the NBA in three-pointers made behind Stephen Curry, Buddy Hield, Damian Lillard, and CJ McCollum.
