Brandon Ingram bet on himself last offseason, and it's going to lead to a much bigger contract next year.
The New Orleans Pelicans star didn't sign an extension when eligible, explaining that he would "absolutely not" consider a deal worth less than the max, per Dan Feldman of NBC Sports.
2 overall pick arguably wasn't worth the max deal, either.
He peaked with 18.3 points per game last season on a team that finished under .500, shooting just 33 percent from three-point range.
Per Feldman, Ingram could make about $167 million over five years on a max contract from New Orleans, but he could also qualify for a supermax of over $200 million if he makes an All-NBA team.
