SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – After the NBA released their three All-NBA teams on Thursday, Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has now qualified to receive a super-max contract extension with the Jazz next summer.

He qualified for the super-max after winning the Defensive Player of the Year award last season and was named to an All-NBA team this year.

Gobert can sign a super-max extension next summer, which is projected to be a five-year $250 million deal.

Gobert’s current contract has him as the highest paid player on the team after making almost $23 million this past season. He is set to make $24.2 million in 2019-20 and $25.7 million during the 2020-21 season.

According to ESPN Front Office Insider Bobby Marks, Gobert received a $500,000 bonus for being named to the All-Defensive First Team.

Next offseason, as it stands right now will have seven players under contract for the 2020-21 season. Gobert, Joe Ingles, Dante Exum, Donovan Mitchell, Grayson Allen, Tony Bradley and Georges Niang.

That also depends on who the Jazz will sign this off-season as they have mentioned that they will be active in free agency.
