Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets: a record $264 million pact, according to AP

Tim Reynolds, The Associated Press

Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets have agreed to a contract extension of up to $264 million, a source told AP.

This is the richest contract in NBA history.

This person spoke to AP anonymously, as neither the Serb nor the Nuggets have made an official comment.

The contract will start from 2023-24 and will run until 2027-28, if Jokic validates an option for this campaign (which would earn him more or less $60m).

Drafted 41st in 2014, Jokic played seven seasons with Denver.

He was an all-star player in his last four seasons, in addition to being named the NBA’s most valuable player in 2021 and 2022.

Last season, Jokic averaged 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, 7.9 assists and 1.5 steals.

Beal stays with the Wizards

On the side of Washington, Bradley Beal and the Wizards have reached an agreement of $ 251 million for five years, said the player’s agent, Mark Bartelstein.

A three-time star player, Beal averaged 22.1 points in 2021-22. A left wrist injury limited him to 40 matches.

Murray moves to the Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks acquired star player Dejounte Murray and Jock Landale from the San Antonio Spurs, trading Danilo Gallinari and a conditional first-round pick in 2023, as well as a first-round pick each year from 2025 to 2027.

Murray was named an NBA All-Star for the first time in his career in 2022. He led the league with two steals per game, along with 21.1 points per game, 9.2 assists and 8.3 rebounds.
