Nikola Jokic News
Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic is coming off another MVP season. He averaged 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 7.9 assists and is considered by many to be the best player in the league. It's obvious the Nuggets want to keep him, although there have been rumblings that the departure of president of basketball operations Tim Connelly would throw a snag in things. However, according to Shams Charania, the 27-year-old is expected to remain in Denver, likely inking a five-year, $260 million super-max extension this summer. Either way, Jokic will be a coveted option by fantasy managers in all formats heading into the 2022-23 campaign, and rightfully so.
Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic was named the Most Valuable Player for the second time in as many seasons. Joker was rumored to claim the award. However, it was made official on Wednesday night, capping off a fantastic year for Jokic, who averaged 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 1.5 steals, all career-highs, while adding 7.9 assists. The 27-year-old should continue to be in the running for the distinction for many seasons ahead. He'll likely also be the No. 1 option for a majority of fantasy managers in drafts ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic has reportedly been named Most Valuable Player for the 2021-2022 season. Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo were also MVP candidates, but the award will stay with Jokic for the second straight season. He averaged 27.1 points and 13.8 rebounds, which were both career highs for Jokic. The All-Star said has mentioned he is willing to sign the supermax deal with Denver. He'll remain a logical No. 1 draft pick in fantasy leagues next season.
Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic mentioned that he would sign a supermax extension if offered by the organization. The reigning MVP appears to enjoy it in Denver and would love to stay with the organization long term. He is eligible to receive the largest supermax contract in NBA history. The deal would be worth $254 million over five years, which is a ton of money, but Jokic is certainly worth it.
