Two-Time MVP Nikola Jokic And The Nuggets Agree To The Largest Deal In NBA History
In the NBA history the largest deal signed by Jokic, he signed a five-year, $270M super max contract with the Nuggets.

Jokic, 27, was a second-round pick in 2014, and after making the All-Rookie First Team in 2016, he evolved into an All-Star and one of the greatest passing big men to ever play.

With one season remaining on his current five-year, $147m deal, Jokic's new contract will kick in for the 2023-24 season, meaning he will not become an unrestricted free agent again until after the 2028 playoffs.

Nikola is a Serbian professional basketball player for the Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association (NBA) who plays the center position. Jokić was a member of the Serbian U-19 national basketball team that won the silver medal at the 2013 FIBA Under-19 World Championship. Over eight tournament games, he averaged 7.1 points, 5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. He represented Serbia at the 2016 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Belgrade, where he earned tournament MVP honors while averaging 17.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.

A four-time NBA All-Star. In the 2018–19 NBA season, while leading the Nuggets to the Western Conference Semifinals, he received his first All-Star and All-NBA First Team selections. In the following season, he once again received All-Star and All-NBA honors, while leading his team to the Western Conference Finals.

Nikola was given two time MVP award, the first time he got the award in the 2020-21 season and the second in 2021-22. In each of his past two MVP seasons, Jokic has averaged at least 26.4 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 7.9 assists per game, and with a game that relies on almost no explosive athleticism at all, he plays a style that projects to age gracefully.

Stay tuned.
