Nikola Jokic is a Serbian professional basketball player for the Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association (NBA) who plays the center position.
He was born in Sombor, Serbia, on February 19, 1995. In a cramped flat, he found his father, grandmother, and two older brothers. His siblings first introduced him to the game, and he was immediately smitten.
There is a yearly average salary of $29.542 million and a $142.710 million guarantee in his five-year deal with the Denver Nuggets.
This is a startling income and bonus for him in 2021-22: $30,510,423 in base pay and $1,068,967 in incentive pay.
He provided himself some wiggle room by obtaining his supermax eligibility as early as he did last year. A five-year supermax contract costing up to $270 million is possible this offseason.
It’s also possible that he’ll wait until free agency in 2023 to see what other possibilities are out there, then re-sign for the same terms after that year.
A supermax extension for Nikola Jokic is expected to be signed by the Denver Nuggets in NBA free agency in 2022, according to his agent Misko Raznatovic.
Meet Nikola Jokić Siblings Strahinja Jokić And Nemanja Jokić
Nikola Jokic was born alongside two siblings. His brothers are Strahinja Jokic and Nemanja Jokic. For their role as fearsome giants protecting their infant brother last year, his brothers became internet sensations.
Strahinja Jokic is the oldest of the two older brothers; Nemanja Jokic is the middle one.
Nikola and Devin Booker of the Suns fought earlier this month. One of the oldest members, Strahinja Jokic went crazy in the stands.
