Contenders basketball will be released on April 13 by Panini, not to be confused with Contenders draft picks. This set is for the 2021-22 NBA season, featuring rookies like Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green and Evan Mobley.

The set includes the popular rookie ticket autos and lottery ticket inserts. There are also Legendary Contenders, MVP Contenders, Rookie of the Year Contenders and Suite Shot inserts in the set.
