AS Monaco Basket has confirmed that court star Mike James has signed a three-year contract extension, securing his future with the Roca Team until 2027.  

Since joining AS Monaco Basket in 2021, Mike James has more than proved his worth as a player and as a leader among his teammates.

He has been particularly strong during the 2023/24 season, being named Most Valuable Player in the EuroLeague, despite the Roca Team failing to make the Final Four, as well as Most Valuable Player in the recent Betclic Elite Final, which saw the Monaco side become Champions of France for the second year running. 

His cumulative efforts over the past few seasons have also seen him take the title of the EuroLeague’s all-time leading scorer, with a career total of 4,623 points in 282 games.
