The OKC Thunder aren’t the only ones giving treats out on Halloween. The Utah Jazz have signed Rudy Gobert to a 4-year, $102 million extension. One of the best shot blockers and rebounders in the game, the 24-year-old is set to be a major key for the Jazz’s future. Via Yahoo Sports:
Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert has agreed in principle to a four-year, $102 million contract extension, league sources told The Vertical.
The Jazz will avoid restricted free agency on Gobert in July, when he likely would’ve found an offer sheet for a four-year, $110 million maximum contract. Utah would’ve had the chance to match the deal and keep Gobert, but an agreement now gives Gobert financial peace of mind and could save the Jazz $8 million to $10 million over the course of the deal.
