Utah Jazz Star Donovan Mitchell Reportedly Signs Max Rookie Extension

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell stands for the National Anthem during a 2020 game against the Golden State Warriors.

Following a 44-28 campaign and a near-miss in the NBA playoffs against the Denver Nuggets, the Utah Jazz appear destined to continue in their pursuit of a championship with much of the same core intact. As reported by ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski, the franchise and its cornerstone player, Donovan Mitchell, have come to terms on a max designated rookie extension.

As a result, Mitchell is now committed to the Jazz for an additional five years beyond his rookie-scale deal, through the 2025-26 season. During that time, he’ll make no less than $ 163 million and could potentially pocket as much as $ 195 million in the event that he earns All-NBA selections in the future.

While no official announcement has been made by the team as of this writing, Mitchell’s agents — Ty Sullivan and Austin Brown of CAA Sports — confirmed the news to Wojnarowski on Sunday.
