With the season NBA the most successful of his career, Rudy Gobert is going to have the possibility of hitting the jackpot in the next few years.
In 81 games played in 2018-2019, Rudy Gobert has shot to 15.9 points, 12.9 rebounds, 2 assists and 2.3 blocks average. For its sixth year in the big league, he does his best statistics. Defender of the year in 2018, Gobert has been selected within the third best team in the league in 2019. After his selection in the All-NBA Second Team in 2017, it is a new proof of recognition for him. Among the favorites for the trophy Defender of the year 2019, it will attempt to provide a doubled. Thanks to these distinctions, it fulfils the criteria of a very juicy contracts (Defender of the Year and selection to the All-NBA).
In the summer of 2020, the pivot may therefore claim an extension of 247.3 million over 5 years. A contract supermax, which, if it were to be proposed, would be the biggest in the history of the NBA. However, and contrary to what Giannis Antetokounmpo is preparing to sign, it is unlikely that the Jazz offers a such amount to the frenchie. By betting on himself, Rudy Gobert could also wait until 2022… and are entitled to a contract of $ 262 million over 5 years.

Year 1 – $44.7 M
Year 2 – $48.2 M
Year 3 – $52.1 M
Year 4 – $56.3 M
Year 5 – $60.8 M
