Gobel signed a four-year $102 million contract extension with the Jazz in 2016. The 2020-21 season is his contract year. As a player who has won the best defensive player twice and was selected into the third and best defensive lineup of the best team last season, he is eligible for a super top salary contract. According to NBA compensation expert Bob Marx, the contract can reach $247.3 million over five years.
In March this year, Gerber became the first NBA player to confirm the new crown. Two days before the diagnosis, he deliberately touched the microphone at a news conference, causing great controversy, and even teammate Mitchell was very dissatisfied with him. However, the two made up before the second round of last season, which ended the so-called internal strife.
This summer, the jazz has extended Mitchell with a five-year top salary contract of 195 million. As the defensive center of the team, whether Goebel can renew his contract is also crucial for the future development of the jazz.
