Yes and no. The $94 million is the special "Derrick Rose rule" max. It's only available to players who meet the criteria. I think it's for players who either win the MVP award at least once while on a rookie contract, or get named to an All-NBA team at least twice while on a rookie contract. Players who do that are performing at such a high level, that the players' association argued that they should be eligible for extensions in the area of those offered to more senior max players.
