Donovan Mitchell agreed to a five-year, $195 million rookie max extension with the Jazz on Sunday, ESPN reported.
The deal, per the report, is worth $163 million in guaranteed money and could increase to the $195 million by meeting the All-NBA criteria for the 2021-21 season.
Since the Jazz drafted Mitchell 13th-overall in 2017, the 24-year-old has become one of the major pillars of the organization. Utah has posted three-straight winning seasons since Mitchell arrived, although the team still hasn’t advanced past the Western Conference semifinals in the last decade.
In his rookie season, Mitchell was neck-and-neck with the 76ers’ Ben Simmons for the Rookie of the Year award. The Louisville product has continued to improve, averaging career highs in points (24), rebounds (4.4) and assists (4.3) per game last season.
Extending Mitchell is just one of the few big moves the Jazz have made this offseason. The organization signed Jordan Clarkson to a four-year, $52 million deal and brought back big man Derrick Favors on a three-year, $27 million deal.
