According to The Athletic, Nikola Jokic is still planning to sign a supermax contract extension with the Denver Nuggets.
Jokic will soon be eligible to sign a supermax deal worth five years and $260 million in July when placed on the table.
Despite executive vice president of basketball operations and general manager Tim Connelly departing the team to take the role of president of basketball operations of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Joker is still planning on staying in Denver.
Jokic, now 27-years-old, has been crowned the league MVP the last two seasons and he averaged 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 7.9 assists across 74 games played in 2022.
His previous deal was a five-year, $147,710,050 maximum contract signed back in July of 2018.
Expect Jokic to remain the face of the Denver Nuggets franchise for the foreseeable future.
