Anthony Davis lost $24 million due to the “Rose Rule”. The Rose Rule states that rookie contract extensions have certain criteria that must be met for a maximum contract. Anthony Davis was signed to a 5-year extension worth $145 million. The rookie contracts must have met this criteria by the end of their fourth season. Anthony Davis must have been named MVP or voted an All-Star starter, so he needed a second-career All-NBA selection this season. He wasn’t named any of these so he didn’t get the bonus money, and lost $24 million.
